more paper bag skirt action

So remember the paper bag skirt I made? Well I had been wanting a more "neutral" one that wasn't so vibrant & both, my friends ((Michelle & Crystal)) and Chase, told me that they almost bought me this skirt at urban outfitters for my birthday. I went to check this skirt out on Monday and after I spent some birthday money ((yay!)), I headed on over to Joann to get some lightweight mock-denim. 

At about 12:30 am Monday night I got the urge to make the skirt. 


So she has way longer legs than I do & mine actually looks a lot less cornflower blue than it photographed there. I used the wrong side of the denim so that it was more grey than dark blue. I put some pockets in that sucker & we're good to go!


1. I thought I smiled for this & 2. I need to stop taking photos so soon after I wake up. Yikes.
Maybe I should have posted this yesterday for a WIWW? Ooooops.

Necklace: Lisa Leonard "Create  a Handmade Life"
Skirt: Handmade ;)

Ps I have been making paper bag skirts custom order style & it's been SO fun! If you'd like one, hit me up on email for some details. My custom queue is about 4 deep at the moment, but I'll be able to crank them out after my conference next weekend!

  2. OK I love this style skirt. you know that. and i love the way it looks on you. i've been debating about whether i need you to make me one because i have a very hourglass figure with a high natural waist. maybe i should go try some on to see how it looks on me...

  5. So lovely! I made one too after seeing your first entry about them, but I agree a more versatile one is in order! & I forgot pockets in my first one. Live & learn! :) SO adorable.

  6. I'm with Hannah... LOVE the way the skirt looks on you, it's adorable! But I'm so sure that I couldn't pull it off. And I'm so impressed with your sewing skills... I could never go check out a skirt at the mall and then come home and make it!

  11. After your last paper bag skirt, I was inspired to make one of my own. I started at about 6pm on a Saturday night and decided to not sleep until it was finished. I got to don a great skirt the next morning at church, and didn't even miss too much sleep-- thanks for the easy idea! :)
