MIETTE SKIRT

£12.50

The perfect sewing project for beginners!

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.

I designed this pattern as the perfect first dressmaking project for new stitchers - simple to 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.

PRINTED PATTERN - You'll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full scale pattern sheets and a colour photo booklet to guide you through the steps. Alternatively you can order the digital version to print and assemble at home.

SKILL LEVEL - Beginners

BONUS TUTORIALS - Follow the detailed Miette sewalong on the blog for extra guidance.

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Medium weight denim, linen or cotton. Nothing too thick or heavy, as you need to be able to slide the waist tie through an opening in the side seam.
