Let’s listen to the melody. This simple, empire-waist jumper sewing pattern designed especially for beginning sewists can be worn alone or layered over a blouse or shirt in cooler weather. View A presents a softly pleated, mid-calf-length skirt, while View B gives an A-line skirt with a single, inverted box pleat at center back. Both views in this sewing pattern button up the back.
Lightweight fabrics like quilting cotton; cotton chambray, fine twill, shirting, and fine-wale corduroy; and light- to medium-weight linen. Coordinating thread, lightweight fusible interfacing, 1/2" buttons or snaps (six for View A, eight for View B).
