The Bettine Dress sewing pattern from Tilly and the Buttons features a loose fitting bodice with scoop neckline, kimono sleeves with turn-up cuffs, an elasticated waist and tulip skirt. This is a great beginner friendly sewing pattern with no fiddly zips or fastenings to sew. The plain skirt version is a great first project for getting into sewing your own clothes. The Bettine Dress is a comfortable, wearable dress that you’ll want to wear every day.
Available in sizes UK6-20 / US2-16 / EUR 34-48.
Bettine works best in a light to medium weight fabric with some drape to keep the blousing on the bodice nice and soft. Recommended fabrics are: cotton voile, lawn and chambray; viscose / rayon; or for a fancier version try a crepe of georgette.
Optional: buttons for cuff tabs
