Tilly and the Buttons MIETTE SKIRT
LEARN TO SEW AN EASY SKIRT!
Learn how to make Miette, a gently flared wraparound skirt that ties at the front in a bow. The skirt has a wide overlap at the back (no danger of flashing!) and optional patch pockets.
this has been designed as the perfect first dressmaking project for new stitchers – simple and easy sew, Miette has no fiddly zips or buttonholes and is easy to fit.
The user-friendly instructions guide you through with a jargon buster, clearly labelled pattern pieces, and photos of each step.
This is a great “blank canvas” project that you can customise with decorative topstitching or embroidery.
