Key features include large front pockets, asymmetric side seams and a pleated opening at back which either buttons or you can use snaps.

Suggested fabrics • Mid weight fabrics such as denim, cotton twill, lightweight canvas or linen and blends.
Fabric requirements • XS-S 1.75 yards /M-L – 2 yards (you will need extra for one way or directional fabric!!) **55″ wide fabric
Trims needed • matching thread / 2 buttons (snap or sew-in) / 3/4 yard fusible interfacing *please note that unless you have a tool for applying snaps, buttons may be the better option here. Also – from experience a lot of sewists have struggled with applying snaps depending on the thickness of the fabric. A shank button is a great option for thick fabric!
