Miette for Mom

My beautiful mom in her new Miette skirt!

It has been a busy few days, but I finally have time to post the skirt I made for Mother's Day. I used Tilly's Miette pattern and jazzed it up with a panel of geometric floral fabric on the bottom. The Miette was really simple to put together and I love how Tilly has the wastband put together - it looks so tidy on the inside. In fact, this skirt has the cleanest and best looking seam finishes I have ever put together.

Cute fabric from Home Ec. in Iowa City - Love that store!

I took a gazillion photos of the inside of this skirt - I felt like a proud mother :)  I bound most of the seams to finish them, and I used a french seam to connect the jean material with the floral material.

Beautifully bound seams!

These seams are bound to last  ;)

I had to show her how it works

Mother's Day card / tag

I designed this tag, with washing instructions, and attached it with a lace ribbon. It looked super cute and doubled as a Mother's Day card. Next I need to make a Miette for myself. This one was hard to give away - I totally fell in love with it. She's lucky she's my mom  ;)

Mom, Miette, and me  :D


  1. Gorgeous!! Love what you've done with the trim. What a lucky mum you have.
