Tilly and the Buttons Sewing Pattern - Romy Top & Dress
Upgrade your casual me-made wardrobe with this stylish (and comfy!) top and dress. The optional back ties or contrast binding add a fun twist to the classic Breton or t shirt dress. Romy has a modern loose fit and high slash envelope neckline, with choice of cap, three quarter or full length sleeves for year-round style.
Fabric suggestions: Medium-weight, low stretch knit fabrics such as jersey, interlock or French terry. You could also use ponte for the long sleeve version. Avoid anything too light-weight, drapey or clingy. If you’re making the back ties version, avoid anything too bulky.
Skill Level: Improvers.
What you'll also need: Matching thread to your fabric, ballpoint (jersey) needle for your sewing machine, for back tie version: 0.5m (5/8yd) of 6-9mm (1/4in–3/8in) clear (swimwear) elastic and sharp all-purpose needle or microtex needle and a sewing machine.
