Hats off to you Tilly another fabulous pattern. As part of My ‘Me Made May’ challenge I said I would finish off more of my stash outfits. Well I have had this fabulous jungle print fabric in the cupboard for a couple of years so it was time to turn it into something.
When I placed an order with Tilly for our Coco Patterns for class I needed to top my order up, so rather than order another bunch of coco’s I thought I would treat BTHQ to half a dozen Miette patterns too (There are 4 left in stock at BTHQ if any of you fancy popping in and having a go).
I traced my pattern off first of all (with help from Stampy Cat) in case I needed to make any changes, but as with all Tilly patterns it fits like a dream.
I decided to go for the patch pocket option and went a bit crazy with the old decorative stitches as you can see!
Granted most people go for a plain fabric for this skirt and I can see why. Trying to pattern match this baby would be tricky. Thankfully I went for a super busy print and made sure I wasn’t chopping any animals in half down the middle. I tried to pick areas with statement animals for the pockets and I reckon it works ok.
I can see myself in the summer with a vest top on a nice safari! Next up is a pattern hack to turn this into a miette/dungaree dress for my daughter. Watch this space, if the kids behave this Bank Holiday I might get cracking.
If you would like to try a Miette and have your hand held, I would be happy to book you in for a class at BTHQ just drop us a line.
