Handmade Style – Tilly and the Buttons Miette

So let’s talk about this Tilly and the Buttons Miette skirt. Excuse my awkward posing but isn’t it beautiful? Even if I do say so myself…


I am in love with this dusky pink linen I bought from the Brighton branch of Fabric Land! It’s the perfect colour for my ideal Capsule Wardrobe (which I am working towards but, as a hoarder, I struggle with). While the Miette is the perfect skirt!

It’s just so easy and wearable! Whether you’re a beginner who just needs something easy to sew or an experienced sewer looking for the perfect spring skirt, trust me the Miette is your pattern.

I’ve already sewn the pocket version in a red linen which is a great summer skirt. For that I shortened the length but this time I have kept it as it is. It’s almost given this Miette a midi length, perfect for those slightly warmer spring days we are constantly promised…

So enough rambling! Above I’ve styled the Miette with a pastel green polka dot blouse and my trusted Nikes. (I just love trainers!) But check out below to see two other ways I think this should be styled. See, I told you it was versatile…

All Dressed Up

Miette skirt, Uniqlo striped top, Swedish Hasbeens, Kate Spade bag
Imagine you’ve booked a romantic trip to Paris, this is what you’d wear right? Well even if you aren’t going to Paris, the Miette paired with a striped top is great for a night out. I didn’t make my striped top *slaps hand* but you sure can and I will be looking at making more jersey tops in the near future. These Swedish Hasbeens are my favourite things, as is this spring appropriate Kate Spade bag.

Keepin’ It Casual

Miette skirt, Topshop denim jacket, Girl Power t-shirt (Brandy Melville), Liberty Superga
For my casual look I’ve paired the Miette with a graphic tee, this one is from Brandy Melville, nothing beats Girl Power! There’s a denim jacket for when it gets cold and a trusty pair of Superga (I know, trainers again!) in this pretty Liberty fabric. Perfect badass Girl Power style!
