Sister Mintaka presents the Arielle sewing pattern by Tilly and the Buttons.
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.
Materials and Supplies
Main Fabric: 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.
Optional: Lining fabric
Supplies: Universal Needle or Jeans Needle, matching thread, 1m medium weight iron-on interfacing, 6 to 8 2cm (3/4in) buttons
