Wardrobe staple

A review of Tilly and the Buttons Bobbi Skirt & Pinafore

Reviewed by Hannah on 1st April, 2022

I have been in need of a black skirt for a while and the Bobbi ticked all of the boxes.

I made my skirt in a black corduroy and it worked really well. It barely makes it into the wardrobe after a wash as I wear it again.

With a slight A-line cut, the option for funky facings and a few different pocket options, the skirt alone is a great pattern. As other reviews highlight, there’s also a pinafore option!

I’ve already cut out a second skirt with the other pocket view. I do love the patch pockets but with the size of phones these days, they aren’t practical! This isn’t a criticism of the pattern, the patch pocket size is proportionate and looks great.

The TATB instructions are amazing, as ever.

I made a straight size 5 but put some elastic in the back waistband to help make the skirt work with a fluctuating waistline.
