Well, a blogger came up with this tutorial for a paper bag waist skirt, the only problem is that it's in swedish and I speak english is there someone out there that speaks the language and would be willing to translate it for me. The skirt is lovely, a girl on another site offered to translate the tutorial for someone else, but when i asked if she would do the same for me she ignored me.

Swedish to english translator. Just copy and paste the text from the blog into the translation box thing. Or you can just paste the link and check the box that says url and it will translate the entire page for you. It's pretty helpful for things like this.

Sadly not all the words always translate (slang or misspellings that the computer cant understand) so you can try a dictionary to translate the words that the first site didnt understand

It'll be a fairly long process and I doubt everything'll make sense but you can probably get an idea of what they want you to do.

Best of luck

I can do it for you!

It first says that the measurements are for herself who's 174 cm tall and wears size S (although S can mean such different things in different countries, so I wouldn't go by that). You can see the measurements of course in the diagram (st. refers to how many of each piece you need, so "2 st." would mean you need 2.)

Then, it sort of goes like this:

Cut out the front and back pieces that should be the exact same size. Fold down about 15 cm on the top edge of each of them and press. Go over the edge with zig-zag. Sew together the back and front, be careful to press out the seams and to zig-zag along all the edges. Sew the hem, roughly 2.5 cm on the bottom and zig-zag. The 8 smaller pieces are belt-loops. Fold each  in half along the longer side and sew together. Iron so that the seam ends up at the back and invisibly. Sew them two by two about 7 cm from the side edge and 7 cm from the top edge. I had about 2 cm between them. There's two on the back and two on the front. The long bit is also folded in half and sewn together, it should however be turned inside out and pressed. Then sew together the ends and thread through the belt loops. Voil! The skirt is ready.

Just off the top of my head, so the technical terms aren't entirely correct, just ask me if you've got any questions! Hopefully it helps!
