Tilly and the Buttons Seren Dress Pattern

Tilly and the Buttons Seren Dress Pattern

£12.50

Keep cool this Summer in a breezy sundress you’ve made yourself. Seren has a flirty, seventies vibe, perfect for picnics in the park or dressing up for cocktails under the stars. Just add espadrilles and a straw hat for effortless style.

The Seren dress has a fitted bodice shaped with bust darts, with a separate waistband to cinch you in, flowing into a flared skirt. It has a button-down front, classic square neckline and shoulder straps wide enough to cover your bra.

Choose from knee-length or midi-length hemline, classic or tie-front bodice, or add the on-trend neckline flounce.

Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Seren includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

SKILL LEVEL – Improvers

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS – Light- to medium-weight woven fabrics such as cotton lawn, chambray, shirting, seersucker, broderie anglaise, linen, viscose (rayon), crêpe de chine. If you’re making the flounce, choose a drapey fabric to keep it soft and flowy.
