PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS SEWING WORKSHOP TILLY AND THE BUTTONS DRESS SUNDAY 10TH MARCH
DATE: SUNDAY 10TH MARCH
TIME: 10AM TO 5PM
Bettine is an easy-peasy throw-it-over-your-head 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 simple to sew, with no fiddly darts, fastenings or set-in sleeves - yay! 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.
FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Light- to medium-weight drapey fabrics, such as viscose (rayon), chambray, cotton voile, double gauze, or crepe, cotton voile, lawn or chambray. If you’re a confident stitcher, try a delicate crêpe or georgette.
