Sawyer is a midi-length skirt that’s really fun to sew, and it pairs so well with your favorite tee, blouse, or camisole. Its A-line silhouette features shaped panels at the sides and a button placket up the center front.

Sew the Sawyer skirt in light or medium-weight wovens such as chambray, linen, twill, denim, flannel, rayon, Tencel, and cupro. For the buttons, you can go vintage, match them to your fabric, or add a pop of contrast.
