Make a gorgeous Indigo dress or top by Tilly and the Buttons using this stunning viscose morracain crepe by Lady McElroy. This kit includes all you need to make a dress or top. There's an easy to follow series of sew-along videos on my YouTube channel which you can sew along with.
The Indigo dress/top is suitable for confident beginners and is by award winning independent pattern company Tilly and the Buttons. The pattern is really clear and easy to follow and includes a full colour booklet taking you through each step.
I love this dress/top because it's so easy to wear. You can dress it up or down depending on your mood. As it's a smock style, it's great for smart casual dressing. The waistline is nice and loose, hence the name 'Buffet Dress'. You can choose to make with a bracelet sleeve or a frill sleeve and you can add a frill seam detail if you like too. This style does not require a zip and even has pockets!! So much to love.
