Sister Mintaka presents the Ness sewing pattern by Tilly and the Buttons.
Elevate your sewing with this classic fly front skirt pattern. Ness looks stylish year-round, paired with a t-shirt in the summer or a roll neck in winter. The straight skirt has a shaped waistband and a curved back yoke for a flattering fit. Choose from a mini version or below the knee hemline with centre from split. Details inspired by denim include a zip fly front, topstitched mock felled seams, belt loops, all-important in-seam pockets, plus optional back pockets for stashing your essentials!
