Lyra Shirt Dress Pattern by Tilly and the Buttons (1034)
If you want to swoosh around in effortless (and mega comfy) style, then meet Lyra, your new best friend from Tilly and the Buttons!
This ultra-cool shirt dress has an oversized, blousy bodice with bust darts, button front opening, two-piece collar and stand, and, of course, side seam pockets. The gathered skirt can be hemmed just above the knee, or add the midi panel for a trendy tiered look.
Choose between short sleeves for easy-breezy summer style or full length billowy sleeves with elasticated cuffs. Wear Lyra loose and floaty, or add an optional narrow tie to cinch you in at the waist. Endlessly versatile, pick a cooling cotton for the heat, cosy needlecord for the winter or a drapey viscose for added swish!
Lyra includes Tilly and the Buttons award-winning beginner-friendly instructions, with colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
All Tilly and the Buttons patterns are printed in the UK on sturdy FSC certified paper using vegetable inks.
