Guess what day it is?? It’s pattern release day!!! And we’ve got a doozy of a pattern to tell you all about. It checks off SO MANY requests that we’ve had come in over the last few years.
Let’s talk all about the new Paperbag Pants + Skirt patterns, in both youth and adult sizes!!
You will have so much fun sewing up these simple bottoms with the adorable paperbag ruffle top! They’re on trend and comfortable with an elastic waistband. They’re perfect for woven fabrics with no stretch, stretch wovens or even a stable knit. The ruffle along the top of the waistband is adorable and fun to wear year round paired with a tank or a cardigan. You can pink the perfect length shorts from 3″ or 5″ inseams. The above ankle capri pant is an adorable more fitted pant you can easily dress up or down with different tops and shoes. You can go short with a mini skirt or longer with a knee length.
Pair any of these options with adorable patch pockets big enough to fit your giant cell phone in comfortably! You can go all out and add belt loops and a tie belt to tie everything together as well!
