Tops & Skirts
Sizes: XS-S-M-L-XL

Learning to sew is easy when you use a Kwik Start Learn to Sew pattern. They are designed for a beginner’s first project. These tops and skirts are very easy to make because they have special, easy-to-follow sewing instructions and more illustrations.

For this design we recommend lightweight woven fabrics such as challis, cotton, cotton blends, linen, rayon and blends. You may also use silk-like fabric; however, it is more difficult to handle.

You can choose the neckline and sleeve length you prefer for your top. The skirt is slightly gathered and has elastic in the casing at the waist. Make it short or long with a side hemline slit.
