A couple weeks ago I decided to try out the Miette skirt pattern from Tilly. I was planning a trip to visit family in my hometown, and wanted to whip up a quick skirt to fill a void in my casual wardrobe. This little skirt was perfect – it was quick and easy to sew! Unfortunately, I didn’t end up getting to wear it on my trip, the temps were too cool for skirts or shorts.
The fabric I used is the same 50/50 linen rayon blend that I used for my Thai fisherman pants. I like that it gives the skirt a little more drape, and is not as A-line, as say a crisper fabric would be.
It’s funny, I wear dresses or skirts to work about 90% of the time, but when it comes to evenings or weekends, I almost never do. I think that by adding a few casual skirts to the mix, that might change.
Anyway, I can totally see making this up in all different colors. I think it’s also a good pattern to sew for others (if you are into that kind of unselfish sewing) because the fitting is so easy. I also think this would be a great skirt to pair with the Nettie bodysuit. In fact, I tried to do that, but about half way through sewing my Nettie, I realized it wasn’t going to fit my shoulders. So I abandoned that one, and plan to cut some more fabric and try again.
Next up, I made some pants! Will share soon. 🙂
