It’s your turn to play. This girl’s skirt, knit top, and knit dress sewing pattern features a gathered skirt (designed for woven fabrics) with elastic-back waistband, front button placket, and an interesting pocket detail inspired by the shape of a takeout box.

TOP OR DRESS: Interlock, jersey, textured knit, lightweight double knit, and matte jersey. (The knit fabric should have at least 25% stretch.) SKIRT: Light- to medium-weight woven fabrics like quilting cotton, broadcloth, shirting, poplin, fine-wale corduroy, twill, denim, chambray, and linen. TOP OR DRESS: Coordinating thread, lightweight fusible interfacing. SKIRT: Coordinating thread, 3/8" or 1/2" buttons (four for sizes 6–24 M, five for all other sizes), lightweight fusible interfacing, 1/2 yard of 3/4"-wide elastic.
