After completing the five dresses in ten days for my daughter I thought it was time to make something for myself, so I picked my current favourite skirt, 'Miette', from Tilly and the Buttons.
Regular readers will remember I have made this before, more than once, as it is a practical and comfortable skirt to wear. I also tweaked the pattern ever so slightly, which you can read about here.
Miette is a back wrap skirt, knee length, with waist ties. It has an optional double front pocket, which I hadn't made before as I had wanted to cut the skirt front on the fold of the fabric to eliminate the centre front seam. However, for the pocket you do need the seam so I cut the front in two pieces.
The fabric I bought a long time ago from Standfast and Barracks, Lancaster, in the days when they were printing Liberty fabric. It is a heavier cotton, with a slightly brushed feel, just right for this time of year.
I finished all the edges with twin needle topstitching in matching thread.
I wore my skirt for the first time today and loved it! I particularly like the waist ties as we had a (very) large picnic on this gloriously sunny Sunday and I could loosen off the waist and still look held together ;)
This is Miette number four, and I can certainly see more Miettes coming along soon!
