Make a gorgeous Indigo dress or top by Tilly and the Buttons using Atelier Brunette Shade fabric in Cactus. This kit includes all you need to make a dress or top. I will be publishing a series of sew-along videos on my YouTube channel starting on Monday 16th November 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 Christmas Day as the waistline is nice and loose (More pudding please!!). 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.
Atelier Brunette viscose fabrics are super soft and drape beautifully, they are perfect for this soft, flowing style of dress/top. Atelier Brunette fabrics are designed in Paris and made in India. I absolutely love sewing with them as the outcome is always really impressive. You get your very own 'designer' dress!

This colour described as 'Cactus' by Atelier Brunette. I'd describe it as a very sophisticated, chalky aqua-marine. If in doubt, then please request a swatch.
