How To Tuesday: Reese's Reversible Paper Bag Skirt

I cannot believe that November is almost here! It seems insane to think that the holidays are right around the corner. But it's time to start thinking about holiday outfits if you haven't already, so I figured it was time for a useful and adorable tutorial. It will be perfect for all those holiday parties and  a great stocking stuffer for so many little ladies in your life.

May I introduce you to Reese's Reversible Paper Bag Skirt! I know that I designed this pattern and all, but WOW! This skirt goes together so quickly that one of our testers even whipped up four in one night! And if your little one is anything like my Ayla, you can't beat the fact that it's reversible. This skirt features a double layer skirt on one side and a sweet and simple twirl skirt on the other. Paired with the paper bag waist line, this little skirt is going to become a staple in your boutique or your little one's closet.

We had so much fun making this one and even more fun taking the photos. Ayla had the perfect hair clip from Punky Punkin Creations to go with this skirt. When I told Mandy (the owner) that one of her clips was going to be on the blog today, she so kindly offered our readers a special coupon code! The code is CKC15, good for 15% off any purchase, now through the end of November, no minimum purchase required. So be sure to go show them some love on their Facebook page. We personally have a handful of their clips and their quality is outstanding, not to mention their prices are very reasonable and hubby approved.

This skirt would also be perfect for teaching your little ones to sew! It's very simple and easy to follow. Since there are no complicated steps, they are sure to get though it without tears. My niece will be coming down to visit in November and has asked me to teach her to sew. This will be the first thing we tackle that week.

Oh, and did I mention that this pattern goes from sizes 3-6 months up to 8y, and also includes doll sizes?! A big thanks to Kristen, our other blogger, for jumping in last night and testing it, not only in the largest size but also the doll size! Is her little one not the cutest thing ever? I swear she is a mini me of her Momma.

 Okay, now on to where to download your Reese's Reversible Paper Bag Skirt! Just follow the link below and download yours today. I'll be keeping an eye on all our social media outlets to see your  lovely creations.

  1. This is my favourite go to quick "Gift" for little girls - so quick, so easy and the result is always beautiful and lets me do handmade without going "overboard". I stock up a little on sale fabrics when I can so that it is pretty affordable. I do mine with a French Seam on the back (top to bottom) seam & the other seam is enclosed in the waistband elastic casing so it looks professional and is really durable for active little girls without me needing to have an overlocker or coverstitch machine.
