Etta Dress - Tilly and the Buttons

"WHY THANK YOU, I MADE IT MYSELF!"

Turn heads in an elegant handmade dress, perfect for special occasions or bossing it at the office.

Sleek and flattering, Etta is shaped with darts at the bust, waist and shoulders, closing with an invisible zip at the back, with a kick pleat so you can strut your stuff with ease. Choose from lined cap sleeves or darted three-quarter sleeves, high back or V-back neckline, with optional collar and faux pocket flaps.

Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Etta includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

"With you, sewing is so easy! Your explanations are crystal clear, many thanks." - Sophie

SIZES - US 2 - US 16

PRINTED PATTERN - You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full scale pattern sheets and a colour instruction booklet. (Alternatively you can order the digital version to print and assemble at home, or have the copy shop A0 option printed.)

SKILL LEVEL - Confident beginners

ONLINE WORKSHOP - Want some extra help sewing Etta? Sign up to our online video workshop - Sew Your Own Knockout Dress - and Tilly will take you through inserting an invisible zip, shaping with darts, setting in sleeves and more. Choose from a printed or digital pattern included in the course materials.

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS – Medium weight, non-drapey fabrics, preferably with stretch for comfort. Try stretch woven cotton, sateen, triple crepe, crepe-back satin, ponte di roma or jacquard knits. The cap sleeve version would also work nicely in brocade.
