Tilly and the Buttons Delphine skirt

Putting the Tilly and the Buttons Love At First Stitch book on my Christmas list a few years ago must have been one of the best things I’ve done, sewing wise. It’s from this book that my favourite skirt pattern, the Delphine, is taken and I’ve used it again and again.

So here’s another Delphine skirt, this time made from a floral fabric that kind of reminds me of curtain fabric (in a good way). This one is fully lined with some extra muslin type fabric I had in my stash and hemmed to an acceptable length to wear for work.

What’s not to love about this skirt? I could make hundreds of different versions I reckon. I love its A line shape, it can be shortened or lengthened to the desired length and, whatever fabric you make it out of (drapey or sturdy, plain or patterned) it creates a whole different skirt.

This is a definite go-to pattern and one of my ultimate favourite sewing patterns. I know I’ve also mentioned my recent love of the slightly similar Prima pattern here and here too, and that one too is a real contender for favourite skirt, but I guess this is one I’ve had more experience of and the fit is perfect.

For previous versions of this skirt, see below:
