Pattern: Miette skirt by Tilly and the Buttons
Size: size 4
Alterations: shortened by about 5 cm
Fabric: a cheap lightweight denim I purchased locally. And when I say "cheap", I mean "cheap", not just inexpensive. Not my best fabric buy.
The only long part in constructing this skirt are the waistband ties: sewing, trimming the seam allowances and handstitch or stitch in the ditch is the longest part, but other than that, it's another instant gratification project. And it doesn't require fitting! Also, the instructions are very well written, Tilly did a superb job.
And there's also another Miette coming soonish to the blog...
I must admit I wore my Miette backwards most of the times, with the bow on the back and the panels overlapping in the front. This way, it's easier to avoid wrinkling the fabric when you sit down and you can wear tops with interest in the front (collars, bow ties, etc.) without redundancy.
on the Bluegingerdoll blog and if you could cast a vote for me, that would make me very happy.
See you soon with my last summer project!
