Hi friends, you know that mythical skirt pattern? That one that goes with everything, looks fantastic AND is easy to make?

Well you guys, you can stop looking because I FOUND IT.

The Pattern

It's the Evie Bias Skirt in View B by Tessuti Patterns.
It's a classic shape, cut on the bias and comes with two waistband finishes.

View A is finished with a bound waistline and side zipper opening, and View B is a pull-on version with a scalloped elasticised waist.

The Fabric

This stunning fabric is the most perfect silk satin with a 22mm weight from Tessuti Fabrics.
Honestly it's one of the most beautiful fabrics I've ever touched. It's soft, it's got the most beautiful drape, and it moves like running water.

You can see it in action below:




🤔 THESE DAYS, if you make a new garment and you don’t do the #handmadehustle , do you even instagram? #profound . IN ANY CASE I just finished making up the #EvieBiasSkirt in a heavenly silk satin; both pattern and fabric from @tessutifabrics and let me tell you, it is TRUE LOVE 😍😍😍 . 👉 SWIPE To see this fabric in action. 💃🏻 It is so divine it looks like some sort of mixture of running water and melted gold. . 🎧 SONG is ‘Saw Her Standing There’ by The Beatles. I know every lyric but I employed IMMENSE self control so that you didn’t have to see my dancing/singing face. No one is ready for that #youarewelcome . FACT - my dad and I recently lit up the dance floor with this tune at my sisters wedding and it may or may not be immortalised on film. No one is safe. . . . #silk #silkskirt #biascut #fashion #silkslip #sew #sewing #sewersofinstagram #tessutipatterns #tessutifabrics #thebeatles #johnlennon #thehandmadehustle

The Details

This skirt is cut on the bias for a loose but form flattering shape.

I chose View B for the waistband, which finishes the waistband with a scalloped edge elastic. This makes the skirt quick and easy to make as there are no zippers or buttons and can be all done in one sitting.

I french seamed the side seams for a polished finish, and hemmed the skirt with a delicate narrow hem.

I cut a size 12 but ended up taking in the side seams by about 4cm and, pinched out about 10cm from the just above the widest part of my hip up to the waistline.
The great thing about a bias cut though, is even if you cut it in a bigger size, the cut will still drape to your shape so it will never look boxy.

Worn With

I've paired my skirt with my me-made leather jacket, BurdaStyle #108B which you can read about here

This jacket happens to be lined with a stunning silk twill that I also bought from Tessuti about 9 years ago, so it seems fitting that I should wear it with this skirt.

Final Thoughts

This cut and this colour make for such a great 'sew-frosting-but-still-a-basic' staple in my wardrobe. The green acts as a neutral and goes so well with most colours and styles.
It can be dressed up with heals and a blouse, or kept casual with sneakers and a tee. I love how versatile it is, but how it elevates every look.

I'm definitely not over this pattern and I plan to make it again in all the colours.
