Description

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.

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.

    Sewing for novices

    Clear and detailed manual - you almost can´t go wrong here. Pattern is printed on solid, reusable paper, and the markings on it help out a lot. The fit is really quite ok as well - I made no adjustments, and it fits just fine. Will use again. :)

    Great Pattern

    Posted by Christine on 15th May 2015

    Have never been disappointed with any of Tilly's patterns and this one is no exception. No thin tissue to tear and very clear, step-by-step instructions. Would thoroughly recommend.
