Pattern Review: Clemence Skirt from Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes

Before moving on to some of the commercial patterns in my ever-growing stash, I decided to do another Tilly pattern as I had so much success with the last one.

There is something in there for everyone, especially this pattern - who doesn't love pyjamas!
