Completed: Miette Skirt

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.

If you’re wondering, that bandage on my arm is from donating blood. I donate about every 8 weeks. If you’ve ever thought about being a blood or organ donor, I encourage you to look into it.  It’s a simple way to make a big difference in the life of someone else.  Plus you get cookies after donating, always a bonus!  🙂

Fitting this skirt was a breeze, I just picked my size based on my waist measurement, and that was it.  I did shorten it by a few inches though.

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.

I love the way it wraps in the back. And it really does feel secure from flashing everyone.

Here’s how it looks unwrapped, from the inside.  I finished the seams with my serger, but french seams would have been nice too.

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.  🙂

  1. Beautiful skirt! I wasn’t originally tempted to make this one, but after seeing it on others I’m slowly being convinced I need one too!! This would be beautiful in a Robert Kaufman linen / denim, for a weekend casual look. 🙂

  2. That’s such a perfect weekend skirt! I love it!

    I would like to donate blood, but I think that I have to wait a year after being tattooed and I never seem to make it that long… 😦
