Tilly And The Buttons Pattern – Bettine Dress

Make your own dress with help from this easy-to-use sewing pattern.

Bettine is an easy-peasy throw-it-over-your-head dress. It has a blousy bodice with scoop neckline, grown-on sleeves which hang softly around the underarm, turn-up cuffs, elasticated waistline to cinch you in and flattering tulip skirt.

The plain skirt version is a perfect project for beginners, as it’s simple to sew, with no fiddly darts, fastenings or set-in sleeves – yay! More experienced? Try the pocket skirt version and optional cuff tabs for a speedy, satisfying project.

Comfortable and gorgeous, this is a dress you’ll want to wear every day. Throw it on with sandals for Summer picnics; dress it up with a necklace for the office or evenings out, or layer it over long sleeves and woolly tights in the colder months.
