  • Description

    A stylish pattern to make pleated shorts and skirt that sit 1" below the natural waist. Both styles include a contour waistband, invisible zipper at the side seam, front pockets, and front and back pleats. 

    Suggested Fabrics

    This pattern works best with a variety of woven fabrics including chambray, cotton poplin, corduroy, shirtings, linen, rayon, denim, and wool.

    Notions

    Coordinating thread, lining (optional: lightweight self fabric can be used instead of lining), 8" invisible zipper, stable lightweight interfacing (fusible or sew-in), and 1 yard of 1/4" twill tape (to stabilize waistband).
