Fabric & Fit
Fabrics to shop: Sew the Sawyer skirt in light or medium-weight wovens such as chambray, linen, twill, denim, flannel, rayon, Tencel, and cupro.
Notions: For the buttons, you can go vintage, match them to your fabric, or add a pop of contrast.
Fabrics to avoid: To get the intended silhouette, use a fabric that has some drape and body, to support the panels and buttons. Quilting cottons will not drape well enough for this skirt.
Fit: This skirt is fitted at the waist, with comfortable ease through the hips, and a stylish A-line silhouette.
