Miette Goes Grey

grey-miette-2Further to my recent quest to make more cake, I decided to make another Miette Skirt, this time in something neutral.

Well, you can’t get much more neutral (or, erm, boring…) than grey.

Yep!  I went to East Coast Fabrics (my new favourite shop), resisted all the pretty florals (a small personal miracle) and came out with this boring, solid grey.

I have no idea what type of fabric it is.  East Coast is insanely cheap and I guess the price you pay for that is that only about a quarter of stock is labelled with fibre content.  Which I actually find surprisingly annoying.  If I had to guess, I’d say this is a poly/cotton blend.  But hey, I’ve been wrong before!

I don’t have a huge amount to say about this skirt.  It’s grey.  I still love the pattern, but this skirt is boring.  I wanted a boring skirt to go with all my pretty tops, but I’m still not that excited by it. It’s made.  I wear it a lot.  I guess this is a success.

Miette – by the Beach!

I was just looking through my pictures on my laptop and found some cute ones of my (then) new polkadot Miette Skirt.  Kyle and I went for a walk along the beach one evening and he is a somewhat obsessive photo-taker.

miette-beachI like this one!  Perfect skirt for an evening stroll along the beach.  And it was breezy and the skirt didn’t even fly up.  😀

This is possibly the only picture where you can actually tell I have a pocket.


The view from the top of the hill at North Burleigh.  Note the people on the rocks silhouetted against the foamy waves – it was a very pregnant lady having pictures taken.  Nude.  She was wrapping herself in a big floaty bit of fabric.  It was one of the most uncomfortable things I’ve ever seen in public.


This is the same beach on another day.  Every now and then I see a picture like this and I think “Oh, so that’s why I live here”.
