Martha Dress Pattern by Tilly and the Buttons (1011)
A favourite of Tilly and the Buttons founder, the Martha dress is a contemporary update on the fit-and-flare style. It features a high neck band, flattering princess seam panels, a bias-cut flared skirt and closes with an invisible zip at centre back. Choose from short sleeves or three-quarter length bell sleeves, with knee-length or mini hemline. It's great for twirling!
Wear Martha to work or to play, with sunglasses and wedges in the Summer, or with knitted tights and boots in the winter.
Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Martha includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew 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.
