This blog post I wrote for the Sewalicious blog, I was provided the fabric free of charge in exchange for this blog post. All thoughts and opinions however are completely my own. Happy reading!
The Bettine Dress by Tilly and the Buttons was one of the first garments I made as an early dressmaker. It’s an excellent beginner friendly pattern with a few techniques to stretch those sewing skills whilst elevating it away from just a simple day dress. With a gorgeous deep scoop neck and a fitted elasticated waist, its very comfortable to wear whilst radiating a stylish summer look.
I chose this divine needlecord from Sewalicious for my version which I absolutely love. It’s a gorgeous leopard print design on a cream base and it’s even got a teeny bit of stretch in it whilst being super soft to touch. The fabric washed really well with minimal shrinkage too. It’s a narrow fabric at 112cm but despite this I still managed to fit the size 2 into 2 meters of fabric (I’d recommend a bit more though for size 3 and above as it was tight!)
