May we introduce? This is our mini …er Mimi Skirt! Small but mighty, you might say. Because the short skirt can be sewn from a variety of fabrics – whether cotton poplin or coat fleece – and promises with its elastic waistband and side pockets not only comfort, but also brings a touch of coolness to your outfit. It’s wonderfully easy and quick to sew, making it one of our favorite after-work projects. The skirt in mini length you make in one of the sizes from XS-XXXL. Which one you sew, you decide only when cutting. Everything you need to make this garment can be found in your sewing kit.
- fabric in the right amount
- the paper pattern (for versions with and without dividing seams)
- elastic band

- scissors for paper and fabric

Which size is the right one? As always, take a look at our size chart. Even if your measurements are slightly different, it’s not a problem! The elastic waistband allows for a cool and casual fit on all of us!

You can find the video instructions for the pattern here. If you’ve never sewn before, watch our sewing machine basics video tutorial first. There you will learn about the components of a sewing machine and how to sew your first seam. The video tutorial for the Mimi Skirt is the same as for the Holly Skirt. Only the lengths of the side seams differ.
