Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns and Melly Sews shows how to make a pleated skirt with a paper bag waist. I love this look! Classic, refined, feminine! For those who wonder what a paper bag has to do with a skirt, a paper bag waist is one that has a ruffle above the waistband. Melissa’s paper bag skirt hits just above the knee, with pockets sewn into the side seams. Go to Melly Sews for the tutorial.
