Your Miette Skirts: Part 2

Some more gorgeous Miette skirts, handmade by you! Check out these lovelies...

Anna always makes such beautiful things and these Miettes are no exception. She told me about the denim version before making it again in red linen:
"This skirt was as much a pleasure to sew as it is to wear. It's really comfortable but cute, and because I skipped the pockets, I can wear it with the bow on the front or in the back, so it's quite versatile. I chose to make it in denim because it looks good with everything in my wardrobe. The simple construction and the great instructions make it a great project for a beginner or instant gratification for a more advanced sewist. I cannot recommend it more. In fact, I made another one for myself (with pockets) in red linen, and I love it even more!"

Mary made this super chic version in my favourite colour palette - such an incredible fabric! In fact, I think I'm going to have to steal it off her. Don't tell. Mary says:
"It is my FAVORITE skirt pattern! It's easy, comfortable, flattering, and can be perfect for any season. Since I'm generally overly paranoid about wrap skirts/dresses - even though this one provides ample coverage - I put a snap on the open side about half way down. You can't even tell that the snap is there and it puts my mind at ease."

For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, looking for an easy beach cover up, check out these beauties made by Andrea! I love how she's cleverly turned the bow ties into button tabs - I must try this. So cute!

Last but not least, Zoe also made a denim version. I love how she's styled it! She says:
"This pattern came together really quickly. The instructions, and sew along on Tilly's blog, are super clear and straight forward. The only difficult bit was turning that waist tie round the right way due to the thickness of the denim....oooh sore fingers :( I love the fit and the fact the ties make a huge front bow.....surprise! I love this skirt, it's going to get so much wear and I can already see a red one and possibly a navy polka dot one in my wardrobes future (you can never have too many spots)."

Thanks you guys for agreeing to be featured! There are plenty more Miette skirts made by you on the Pinterest gallery.

  1. Beautiful skirts from some talented ladies.
    I love Andrea's button tabs especially.
    I wore mine to a special opening ceremony of a new classroom at my sons school yesterday!

  2. Thanks for the feature and the sweet words, Tilly :D

  3. What fabulous creations Tilly each one is so lovely. Always enjoy your blog Tilly and look forward to your posts - can't wait for the book. Big hugs

  4. Love seeing more Miettes! I especially adore Mary's polka dot version - fun!

  5. Beautiful versions, I especially love the red linen one! The miette was my first real sewing pattern and I finally posted my makes at sewnbyelizabeth(.)blogspot(.)com(.)au I'm eagerly awaiting your book!!

  6. I just adore seeing all the variations of the Miette Skirts.

  7. Lots of lovely denim versions! I love the buttoned mini versions too

  8. Okay, I caved and just bought the pattern. Hope it looks nice on my "fuller" figure!

  9. I like the button tabs idea, if I'm honest the bow around the waist put me off slightly because I don't tend to wear high-waisted styles or styles where the waist is on show, I tend to have a jumper or t-shirt layered over the top of my waistband so any extra material like bows always leaves a weird bump! The button tabs would work well with my style tho!

  10. I love the idea of the button tabs as I tend not to tuck my tops in so the big bow on the front is problematic for me. Being a very novice sewist I'm not sure how to go about making this alteration. Any tips please Tilly?

  11. So great to see so many variations come out of one pattern. Love those button tabs too!

  12. Thanks so much for the mention Tilly! :)
