Dark Femme Floral: Tilly and the Buttons Arielle Skirt

Dark Femme Floral: Tilly and the Buttons Arielle Skirt

Hey Ya'll!
I'm going to try to record all of my personal sewing explorations on this blog. Which means less consistency but hopefully long term this will lead to a more complete portfolio of my working mind.

Today I'll be speaking about my Tilly and the Buttons' Arielle skirt. I really enjoyed making the skirt, and as with all Tilly patterns, the directions are clear and the product is flattering. I ALWAYS struggle with sizing, as my number sizes are always so significantly larger than the size of pattern I end up with, but this is not exclusive to Tilly, it usually happens with all patterns. Do I have reverse body dysmorphia? We just don't know.

The pattern is lovely and a breeze to make, if I have any complaints it's all my personal decisions. I definitely like the way the skirt turned out, but i'm definitely looking forward to making a little shorter version in a solid color with more dramatic buttons. Definitely looking forward to making another one!
