Bettine dress by T&TB

I would like to share my Bettine dress by Tilly and The Buttons! It is so lovely! I love this quite different shape that it has. I’m used to fitted bodices and gathered/full skirts and Bettine was a really happy change for me.

The dress has kimono sleeves with turn up cuffs and you are able to put sleeve plackets on or to avoid them. It has elasticated waistline and a tulip shape skirt. There are two skirt variations. Variation 1 has a plain skirt while variation 2 comes with pockets. I made the dress with turn – up cuffs, sleeve placket and skirt with pockets. This pattern is beginner friendly.

I created an opening at the front (for easy breastfeeding access) using snaps for the clisure. Also, I lined the skirt and this adds comfort to the the dress.

Sewing pattern: Bettine dress by Tilly and The Buttons
Size: 4
Fabric: Cotton poplin (main fabric), Viscose lining fabric for the lining
