The Bettine Dress by Tilly and the Buttons was one of the first garments I made as an early dressmaker. It's an excellent beginner friendly pattern with a few techniques to stretch those sewing skills whilst elevating it away from just a simple day dress.

The release of the Tilly and the Buttons Romy dress/top coincided with my next blog post for Sewalicious. It felt like a perfect moment to make it up. I looked at all the jerseys on the Sewalicious website and this nautical print was my favourite. This fabric can be used for children and also the big kids out there, myself included

I really like wearing skirts at this time of year. You can look a little bit dressed up and still keep warm at the same time. Makes a great change to wearing the same old jeans during the winter!
