The Simplicity competition spurred me on to make it, that and that my Miette skirt is one of my most worn makes because it's so versatile. I was going to use the simplicity pattern and enter the competition however we moved house and I completely lost both patterns!
The seed was there and I decided to draft it myself.
When I say draft, it's literally 3 rectangles! I measured my waist and added a seam allowance. The skirt pieces take up the whole width of the fabric so I used 98% of the fabric I had. Speaking of which u have no idea where this chambray came from! I'm thinking Blackbird fabrics? But I genuinely have no idea! Which is unusual for me, but then there's a lot of chambray in my stash!
Insides were all overlocked and I added pockets with some scrap fabric leftover from my shirt dress.
I absolutely love this skirt! It's been in heavy wardrobe rotation since I finished it, which always makes sewing feel more rewarding!
