Buy the Stevie Tunic sewing pattern from Tilly and the Buttons. With no darts, zips or set-in sleeves, Stevie is a satisfyingly quick and easy make – yay! Stevie has a modern, boxy fit, with a round neckline and grown-on sleeves, closing at the back with pretty ties or a button loop. Make Stevie as a top with a cropped hemline that hits the high hip, or as an above-the-knee dress, with optional turn-up cuffs and patch pocket. Throw it on with a statement necklace and you’re good to go!

Note: An expansion pack (sold separately) is also available for the Stevie Tunic. The Stevie Tunic Add-on includes pattern pieces and instructions for three-quarter length sleeves and a gathered skirt, so you can turn Stevie into an easy-breezy, oversized smock dress with an extra-large pocket to stash your bits and bobs.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50)

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

What we think: A great beginner’s dressmaking project. With no sleeves to insert, construction is easy, and there is the option to make a top version as well. The cute tie closure detail at the back neckline gives this simple pattern the edge!

Suggested fabrics: Light- to medium-weight woven fabrics, such as linen, double gauze, chambray, cotton lawn, viscose (rayon). If you’re a confident stitcher, try a sandwashed silk or crêpe de chine.
