  • IRIS TOP | DRESSMAKING PATTERN | FOR BEGINNERS

    £18.00

    Iris is a casual top that features three quarter length sleeves, a ruffle at the shoulder and split side hems. Easy to sew, with only two long darts from neck to bust, the pattern also includes an option for a full flutter sleeve, giving a summery feel. Alternatively, why not leave off the sleeves altogether and bind your hems for a simple cami top?

    Iris is the perfect blend of simple design with interesting detail – that ruffle and the side split are just crying out for some attention. Great with jeans, skirts or shorts in the summer, this is a hugely versatile blouse that can be dressed up or down to suit your mood or the fabric you choose. Light-weight cotton is perfect for beginners or those new to sewing, but if you fancy a slightly more luxurious feel then go for lawn, sateen or even silk.

  • CASSIE DRESS | DRESSMAKING PATTERN | FOR BEGINNERS

    Cassie is a loose fitting, flowing summer dress designed to keep you cool in the heat. Perfect for popping on post-beach or wearing out for a picnic, the dress is based on a t-shirt style bodice, with gathered skirt layers, in your chosen length.

The dress can also be made with tie straps for hotter weather in classic sundress style.

    A very easy make, the dress features short, attached sleeves and bust darts, and no closures. This pattern is suitable for beginners and those with very little sewing experience.

  • DOMINIQUE | TILLY AND THE BUTTONS | DRESSMAKING PATTERN | SKIRT | BEGINNERS

    £18.00

    Sew your own Dominique skirts – the ideal project for a novice stitcher, or a satisfying one hour make for more experienced dressmakers.

    We designed the straight skirt to be super simple for beginners. It features straight seams to practise your stitching and an elasticated waistband for an easy fit – with no fiddly zips or buttonholes! Choose from knee length or above-the-knee hemline, and add the optional turnover top patch pockets.

    The flared version of the skirt is slightly more challenging, as it’s cut on the bias and we suggest a drapier fabric for a flowing silhouette. Choose from knee length or on-trend midi hemline, with optional turnover top pockets, belt loops and elegant sash.

    Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Dominique includes instructions in plain English, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

    Fabric – Straight skirt with pockets: 1.1m x 150cm wide / 1.5m x 115cm wide
