|Double Tilly: Mathilde + Miette|
The plan was to just cut it out and have it ready to go on another day. But then I thought I'd sew up the seams Oh and maybe just make up the waistband. Mmm, well, now I'm this far along, I may as well finish it. And there it was. A finished Miette!
The only change I made to the pattern was to sew down the seams. My design feature (or was it laziness because it was already in the overlocker !!) is the bright pink overlocking of the seams. Yep, a way out there design feature!
I think this will see a lot of wear. In fact, when I was trying it on with things, it just seems to go with everything. I've gone with a bit of double Tilly for these photos with my Mathilde paired with the Miette, but in fact today I'm wearing it with my sugar tee and a cardigan.
There was a bit of discussion over at Claire's the other day about making up clothes for work or for play and this skirt has surprised me. I think it could go into both. Despite it being denim, the dark wash dresses it up a bit.
Thanks Tilly for another great make!
*disclosure: I did buy one piece of fabric, but given I've made this up in stash fabric - I'm still good with my one in one out semi pledge (which I might formalise one day).... I still have metres left of the denim, but I have at least made a dent in it.
