Buy the Children’s Tilly-pom Playsuit and Dress sewing pattern from Sew La Di Da Vintage. Tilly-pom looks like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. She’s the polite one at the party that you later find out ate half of the birthday cake before the candles came out!

Inspired by the classic yet practical children’s wear of the 1950s with a modern twist, Tilly-pom is a culottes-style playsuit, which can also be made up as a dress. The peter pan or sailor collars give the pattern a smart, groomed look, but touches like the hidden pockets for keeping bits of twigs in, and the climbing-friendly shorts mean that Tilly-pom is ready for play. Made up in linen, she’s your go-to all in one for a summer’s day on the beach; made up in velvet or taffeta and finished with a lace collar, she’s party perfect for special occasions. A chic beret pattern is also included, but don’t blame us if you find it being used as a frisbee.
