Ballet-style wrap top in jersey ties at the natural waist while the back tucks into the skirt as a 'muffin cover.' The top is cut all in one piece with the sleeves, which may be cut longer or shorter. The four-piece circle skirt makes optimal use of fabric, zips up the back and features a pintucked patch pocket. A strong, simple, neat double binding finishes the waist edge of the skirt.

Skirt is suitable for a wide range of woven fabrics -- the simple shape will showcase a beautiful weave or texture. The wrap top is suited to a wide range of jersey fabrics -- avoid bulky sweater knits as the ties must wrap around the waist. See instructions for further fabric selection guidance.
