Stevie and the procession of ladies

A review of Tilly and the Buttons Stevie Tunic

Another lovely pattern from Tilly and the Buttons – but I nearly passed this one by. I wasn’t at all sure it would suit my frame, and it wasn’t until I saw the reviews from others (and people at the Sewing Weekender wearing them) that I changed my mind. I think it’d be important to find the right fabric to really love this dress though. Fortunately I’d been gifted this amazing teal Japanese print, with a procession of ladies along one edge and I love the way it works with the pattern. Without any darts to interrupt the pattern, the simple design works really well with an interesting print – but I’d suggest a soft, slightly drapey fabric works well to keep the shape flattering.

I’d definitely say this pattern would suit any level of experience, as the instructions are very clear with photos and hints to take you through the different stages. There are no complicated closings (buttons, zips etc). If you’re tempted for a quick summer make now the sun has made an appearance, this is a great option.
