I’ve made my second Beignet…and I love it. God I love it. It’s the most gorgeous colour (teal) and material (corduroy). I’m delighted with it. I’ve unashamedly copied both Tilly’s bow belt and a touch of styling on the old stripey top (although truth be told there was nothing else that worked as well anyway with this skirt).
With the bow I mostly followed Tilly’s instructions but I decided to make the bow removable just in case I wanted to do something else with the belt like use a buckle or something. So it’s stuck on with some velcro!
Hooray for the Beignet. Is there a more accessible or useful pattern out there? I’d love to know but as a beginner sewer this was fairly easy to follow (plus it’s marked as intermediate which makes you feel even better) and it’s so adaptable. Officially am in love with the Beignet.
P.S. Just adding a quick para to thank Handmade Jane for her tips on the belt loops. No way would I have been able to create those loops without her clever cheat.
