Tilly & The Buttons Sewing Pattern - Seren Dress


Create yourself a gorgeous handmade dress with the help of popular pattern designer, Tilly & The Buttons.

Great for improvers and bang on-trend, this Seren sundress is simple to sew, and great for practising those buttonholes! Make it in a gorgeous bright colour for an eye-catching summer outfit. Choose from knee length or midi length with optional front flounce and tie waist. 

Why are these patterns so great? Not only do you get the pattern, but also full-colour step-by-step instructions with photographs, so you don't have to be a great pattern reader to be able to make a modern and stylish dress. 

Use light to medium weight woven fabrics, such as cotton lawn, chambray, shirting, seersucker, broderie anglaise, linen, viscose (rayon), crepe de chine. Choose a drapey fabric if you're doing the flounce to keep it soft and flowing.

Knee length - 2.2m (2 1/2 yards) x 150cm (60in) wide OR 2.7m (2 7/8 yards) x 130cm (51in) wide
Midi length - 2.5m (2 3/4 yards) x 150cm (60in) wide
