I agree one would have to be skinny to wear it, but I think it screams, "Couture" not homemade. Think out of the box. Y'know I'd have to try one on. Maybe it hides midriff bulge.

I actually like this!!! :) I had a pattern similar to this but I never made it. It was a straight instead. It brings my eyes to the waist :)

This is as ugly as ugly gets!

PLEASE take this off and put us out of our misery! Or at least put on a photo of a better example of a "paper bag" skirt.

This would be fine if you were about 6' tall and thin as a rail. I sure wouldn't wear it.

Looks like you took a drape and cut it to fit....not attractive at all. This will be a miss for sure.

I usually love your projects, but this one is just a miss. It's unflattering and screams homemade, and not in a good way. Sorry.

I'm sorry, but that is the ugliest skirt ever. Even the pretty fabric does not help.

what a joke
