M.M.M.’13 Version 2.0!

My-Midi-Miette skirt 2013.

I made two linen wrap skirts this summer that I didn’t share, so I’m rewinding a couple of seasons and doing a double post review to catch up.

This is the Miette skirt pattern by Tilly and the Buttons. It’s a wrap, front tie-fastening midi- length, A-line skirt. I bought the pattern from Tilly’s website as a downloadable PDF.

Tilly’s designs are simple and feminine and work for a range of body types and her construction instructions couldn’t be easier to follow, especially as she provides visual and written explanations. If you are new to sewing, her patterns are very beginner-friendly and a good place to start your sewing journey.

I made the midi-version of this skirt first which is the original length of the pattern with no alterations. It was straightforward and quick to make and because there is no zip or button fastening, just the tie, it’s easy to adjust the skirt’s fit.

I made mine from a fairly lightweight and fine linen and so it isn’t as structured looking as it would be in a heavier fabric like denim. I paired it up with my Breton-striped Scout Tee by Grainline Studios and together they made a very easy to wear and comfortable summer outfit.

I really want to make another one in a heavier fabric for winter, especially after seeing the lovely denim version that Tilly recently posted on her blog. It’s definitely a skirt for all seasons and I can’t stop making them!

Have you made a Miette skirt yet? If not, what’s stopping you??
