Tilly and the Button sewing patterns are refreshing and modern guides to sewing your own clothes. They are so user-friendly and free from techy diagrams and confusing jargon. Instead you will receive a photo booklet showing you exactly how to do each step. Even if you are new to stitching, you will create garments you can be proud of.
Bettine is an easy-peasy throw-it-over-your-head kinda dress. It has a blousy bodice with scoop neckline, kimono sleeves which hang softly around the underarm, turn-up cuffs, elasticated waistline to cinch you in and flattering tulip skirt.
The plain skirt version is a perfect project for beginners, as it's oh so simple to sew. For the more experienced, try the pocket skirt version and optional cuff tabs for a speedy, satisfying project.
Comfortable and gorgeous, this is a dress you'll want to wear every day. Throw it on with sandals for Summer picnics; dress it up with a necklace for the office or evenings out; or layer it over long sleeves and woolly tights in the colder months.
