MiH x Coco and Vera :: Sewing ::

Friday, 10 April 2015

People, I made that skirt.. I know I can hardly believe it myself - I made that skirt, I made that skirt, I made that skirt... And Cee is totally rocking it - because there is no way in a million years I would look that good in it. And she styled in Paris - in Paris, man, can you believe it - and for a proper photoshoot, as if it was for a magazine. Thank you I heart Paris to let me share the pics! 

And the result is quite stunning. I cannot believe it - I think Mr MiH may be sick of me swooning over my own handy work. To be fair I never thought it would look this good! 

You will remember the first Tibi skirt I made for Cee. This one is really similar - same pattern, same fabric (from the same shop but in a different colour of course), same modifications (ie lengthening it). 

I only changed the pleats to make them more like a real Tibi skirt and also added a wider horsehair braid (found here) at the bottom for more effect. Also you will note that it was in the end totally worth matching the fabric to the braid - thankfully I did, phew!

The pictures make me as happy as I first had a glimpse at them on instagram. I may leave you, and have my happy dance in the living room! 


  1. I'm with you, Nat - I still can't get over how beautifully these photos turned out, and I know a lot of that beauty has to do with the skirt you made, which seems to jump right out of the pictures. I loved working with you on this, and the final product could not be lovelier :)

  2. We gasped when we saw these photos! Sooooo gorgeous! Wonderful job on this skirt. May we use photo(s) in our social media? Crediting you, of course. Send us an email at blog@mccallpattern.com. Thanks!

  3. Oooooh, Nat - it's GORGEOUS!!! Absolutely stunning - swoon away!!!

  4. So cool that you were a part of that. Congrats!

  5. I don't know where to start... well done on the great make , well done on the great photos, and well done on the lovely comment from McCall Patterns. (and loving the laboutins)

  6. Wow, stunning well done! You could totally rock this too! You might have trouble finding a backdrop like the Louvrein London though...! Gorgeous
