A review of Arielle Skirt
This is a high waisted close-fitting skirt, with pattern options for mini or knee length and lined or unlined. I made the lined knee length version in a heavy denim. I found it true to size. I cut a straight size 4 and then took in the waist slightly after trying it on during construction., which is a common adjustment for me. The pattern instructions are clear and the pattern pieces all came together very well. The only slightly tricky element is sewing the lining to the waist facing at the curves, but this is well explained in the pattern booklet. If making again I’d use fabric with a bit of stretch – although denim is a good choice for giving structure, the pencil style of the knee length version does mean there’s not much room for movement.
