I just can’t get enough of the Arielle skirt from Tilly and the Buttons. So I made my third version to be a great staple for fall 🙂 I used a medium weight rust-colored corduroy from Fabric.com. It was actually leftover from a dress I’d made for a friend last year, so it worked out even better!
This skirt is just such a flattering fit that it’s hard to resist. And I didn’t do a lining on this version so it hardly took any time at all.
I made a denim mini Arielle with brass buttons for my first version and I liked it overall, but it’s always felt slightly too big and I wasn’t sure what to do about it. But with the corduroy one I just made, I was careful when marking the spots for the button placements. The pattern recommends putting the skirt on and marking a spot for the buttons through the buttonhole opening, and while I did do that the first time around, I didn’t have the skirt on very snugly, so it ended up feeling a little loose. But this time, I made sure I held the skirt on very snugly while marking for the buttons, and it fits like a glove 🙂
Can’t wait to wear this with all sorts of cute Fall outfits!
Oh yea and I didn’t post about my second Arielle skirt, so here it is! I made this one with a kelly green cotton twill from Fabric.com, and had a cute floral lining to go with it. Didn’t have the sizing issue I had with my denim version.
