Pattern Hack: Paperbag Waist

Hack this season’s hot high-waisted pant trend by adding a cool paperbag waist with a self-fabric belt. This technique works best with wide leg pants with no side seam, such as the Persephone Pants by Anna Allen (http://annaallenclothing.com/). Once you master these steps, apply the same principle to alter any skirt or pants pattern the same way.
