Etta Dress – New Pattern from Tilly & The Buttons

Every time Tilly announces that she is going to launch a new pattern we all get very excited at Fabric Godmother.

This latest dress pattern is no exception. Etta has arrived just in time for the summer, Etta is an elegant fitted dress, shaped with darts at the bust, waist and shoulders. Sleek and flattering, it has a choice of lined cap sleeves or darted three-quarter length sleeves, high-back or stunning V-back neckline, with optional collar and faux pockets. Etta closes with an invisible zip at the back. The hemline hits the bottom of the knee, with a kick pleat for easy movement. Have a look at Etta below and see my fabric suggestions for your Etta!
