Tilly & The Buttons - Dominique Skirts


Dominique is the ideal project for a novice stitcher, or a satisfying one hour make for more experienced dressmakers. The straight skirt features straight seams to practice your stitching, and an elasticated waistband for an easy fit - with no fiddly zips or buttonholes! Choose from knee length or above-the-knee hemline, and add the optional turnover top patch pockets. The flared version of the skirt is slightly more challenging, as it's cut on the bias. Choose from knee length or on-trend midi hemline, with optional turnover top pockets, belt loops and elegant sash.

Suggested fabrics: Straight skirt – Medium-weight woven fabrics, such as cotton, chambray, double gauze, linen, lighter weight denim and needlecord. Flared skirt – Light- to medium-weight drapey fabrics, such as cotton lawn, chambray, viscose (rayon), silk or polyester crêpe de chine. Avoid anything slippery if you’re a beginner!

Materials required:
Straight skirt fabric - 1.1m x 1.5m wide / 1.5m x 1.1m wide
Flared skirt fabric - 2.5m x 1.5m wide / 3.1m x 1.1m wide (less for knee-length)
