Arielle Skirt

Hey there!  Happy 2016!  Welp, I’ve been a pretty bad blogger these past few months.  I have a pile of projects from 2015 I need to share with you (I count four dresses, three shirts, and one pair of jeans) but I’m going to start with this skirt!  I’m hoping to grab pictures of all these projects so I can share all the details with you…they are all pretty great!

So this skirt…it’s the Arielle skirt by Tilly and the Buttons.  I haven’t sewn with her patterns before, but thought it was about time I change that!  I love how this skirt came out!

I sewed it up in canvas from Robert Kaufman…it’s the Geo Pop Canvas 2 line by Emmie K.  The canvas is perfect for the skirt, and I have a bit more I think I need to make into some shorts for the summer!  The fabric’s a great weight and I love all of the prints in Emmie’s new line!

Tilly gives you two different lengths for this pencil skirt, a mini and a knee length.  I went right in between the two lengths.  One great thing about waiting to blog about a project is you get to rave about how much you wear it and love it (this skirt would fall into that category)!  But one bad thing is I didn’t write down all of the sewing details.  I know that I used the longer length pattern and cut some fabric off, maybe two inches, maybe four?  Ahh…sorry about the lack of info!  Let me just go back to, hey, I love it and wear it!
