    Lovely project!

    Posted by THF on 31st Jan 2019

    This is a really nice sewing project! As with all Tilly patterns the instructions are clear and easy to follow, with videos available for the trickier bits! I made a lovely skirt, which will be a solid wardrobe staple! I sewed up the mini, adding a couple of inches, did a sway back adjustment and had to grade in slightly at the waist. The result is the best fitting denim skirt I have ever owned!
