Lyra Dress from Tilly and the Buttons

Swoosh around in effortlessly and in mega comfort
in the latest pattern from T&TB!

Meet the Lyra Dress from Tilly and the Buttons. It’s an ultra-cool shirtdress that you will want to wear on repeat! It’s the first of T&TB sewing patterns to go up to a size 34 (UK). This extended sizing is for larger busts. And is great news if you want to avoid making a full bust adjustment!

This dress has an oversized, blousy bodice and cute button front opening. It has a stylish two-piece collar that will take your sewing to the next level. Choose to make it with a trendy tiered look, or knee-length skirt and short sleeves for easy-breezy summer style. You can also make a full-length billowy sleeves with elasticated cuffs version for evenings out.

Wear this dress loose and floaty or add the narrow tie to cinch you in at the waist. This dress is so versatile and is ready for all seasons. Pick cooling cotton for hotter days or cosy needlecord for chillier one. Or make in a drapey viscose for added swish. This pattern is a good choice if you want to learn to sew a neat shirt collar or master buttonholes. The pattern comes in two size ranges – 6-24 (UK) and 16-34 (UK). People won’t believe you made it yourself!
