Buy the Indigo Top and Dress sewing pattern from Tilly and the Buttons. Cute, comfy and effortlessly stylish, Indigo has no fiddly fastenings so you can throw it on and go. Sew it with classic gathered seams or elevate it to a stand-out piece in your wardrobe with the pretty exposed frill seam. Indigo has a bodice shaped with bust darts, gently curved empire waistline, and floaty gathered skirt. Make it as a top with a dipped hem ending at the low hip, or as a knee-length dress with a straight hem and pockets (yay!). Choose from three-quarter flounce sleeves or slim-fitting bracelet sleeves.

Note: There is also an add-on expansion pack available to purchase separately for the Indigo Top and Dress where there are additional pattern pieces to make a swishy midi dress by adding an extra tier to the skirt, sew short sleeves, with or without an added ruffle and create a gorgeous button back bodice.
