I forgot to blog this linen blend Miette wrap skirt, which I have been enjoying for several weeks. It's really worth it to put in a lining, which I sewed into the waist and side hems, but left loose at the bottom.
After making the first attempt, the one thing I didn't like was that the hem hung shorter in the back than the front. So this time I added a half inch to the hem of the right and left panels (which end up being the back of the skirt when it's on). Worked like a charm. If you are trying a Miette for the first time you might keep that in mind when you hem.
Despite not being the best candidate for this style of skirt (I'm thick waisted and have a short body) I still think it looks cute enough on. Sorry for the real life skirt wrinkles; I wore it to worship before taking this picture so it had gotten squished in the car and in the pew.
