Foxy Lady! 

I’m catching up on blog posts right now so here’s a quick post of my Tilly and the Buttons Rosa dress.

The foxy fabric was picked up on Leicester market during a recent visit home (fabric shopping is one of the things I miss living here in the Highlands). I already had the pattern having bought it in a whim after seeing @Charlottesews version of the dress. 

I’ve not seen a Tilly pattern since I downloaded the Meitte skirt many years ago. This was a joy to work with. I cut out the largest version (yes, life’s too short for tracing patterns​) and didn’t need to make any adjustments. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. 

It was my first attempt at mock felled seams and I’m very pleased with the result. There’s a lot of top stitching involved so it was a great opportunity to get to know the measuring lines on my machine!

It didn’t take long to sew it up and I’m extremely pleased with the results. I have a feeling I’m going to have a lot of these in my wardrobe before too long!
