Tilly and the Buttons Miette skirt

June 27, 2018

This month, I have another Tilly and the Buttons pattern to add to my list of completed projects: the Miette wrap skirt.  I’ve always liked the look of this pattern, despite not being a fan of wrap skirts/dresses (too liable to expose me) and not being a regular wearer of skirts (I usually opt for dresses instead).  With this skirt, it’s all about the pockets, the bow, and the 70s style, which makes it stand out as something that little bit different from your average skirt.

I was pretty clear on wanting to make the skirt in a denim, but when I found the Art Gallery Fabrics denim collection, I was drawn to the ‘Cherry Crimson’ red chambray.  It’s a lovely fabric, and I think it worked well for the style of the skirt.

You can read more about my making this over on Minerva’s website here, as it is my June project for their blogger network.  They provided the fabric and the thread, and I borrowed the pattern from my friend Nicola.

My only reservation about the skirt is that the pockets are still not quite deep enough!
