Tilly and the Buttons - Arielle Skirt 1005

£12.50

Learn to make this skirt!

This easy-to-use sewing pattern will take you through the steps to making the Arielle skirt, with jargon-busting instructions and photos showing you how to sew each part.

Arielle is an asymmetric pencil or mini skirt with an adorable button opening to one side. Long darts and a high waistline create a flattering, figure-hugging shape. The unlined version is an ideal project for confident beginners, or take your sewing prowess up a notch by adding the optional luxury lining.

PRINTED PATTERN - You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full scale pattern sheets and a colour guide with step-by-step photo instructions.

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Medium-weight woven fabrics such as stretch cotton, sateen, denim, gabardine, brocade, suiting, pincord, lighter weight canvas or wools. Choose something with enough body to hold the shape, but not too thick or the darts will be bulky. A touch of stretch would be a bonus.
