Supplies for the Paper Bag Waist Skirt Pattern

  • Fabric: This skirt can be made from woven or knit fabrics. Lighter fabrics with good drape will make a flowy skirt, while heavier fabrics will create a more structured skirt. The amount of fabric needed will be determined based on your measurements and preferences, but 2-3 yards will suffice in most cases. Woven fabrics tend to be more beginner-friendly.
  • Elastic: 1 inch in width, preferably non-roll. The amount needed will be equal to your waist measurement.
  • Basic sewing machine
  • Matching thread
  • Iron
  • Scissors and pins/clips
  • Safety pin
  • Measuring tape or meterstick and marking pen/chalk
