Several months ago, I embarked upon making myself a skirt from the Miette pattern by Tilly and the Buttons.

Inspired by the red version of the skirt shown on the cover of the pattern (and the fact that I had a large piece of red linen I'd been holding onto for years), I decided to make a red version, and here it is...

The pattern was really easy to follow (as was Tilly's Coco dress that I made last year) and I managed to run it up in about 2 hours, with a little bit of finishing the next day. To begin with I wore it as shown on the pattern, with the bow at the front, but I found this got in the way when I needed to wear a cardigan or something with it, so I've now turned it around and wear it with the bow at the back (and as a result I'm wearing it a lot more). I'm trying my best to embrace the creased look of the linen but I think I may have to make another one in a slightly more practical fabric.

So my mission to make more of my own clothes is progressing, albeit very slowly! I now have 3 dress patterns waiting in my to do pile, and I have the fabric for 2 of them so I'm really hoping to get on with them over the coming weeks, so I can wear them over the summer (I'd only been sitting on Miette for 4 months before I got around to making it - that's not bad for me!).

Visit Tilly's website to buy this pattern and see the others she has available. You can also buy her book, Love at First Stitch which I'm lusting after as it comes with full size patterns.
