If you look closely at the skirt, you will notice the pattern we recommend doesn’t have separate plackets for the button front of the skirt. There are a couple ways to modify the pattern. You could cut apart the front pattern pieces (remember to add seam allowance, and sew the suede to the tweed before you begin. Or you could also cut the suede to the placket width and top stitch it in place before making the buttonholes.
