Brand new from Tilly and the Buttons is this fabulous new sewing pattern for the Lyra dress. If you want to swoosh around in effortless (and mega comfy) style, then Lyra is your new best friend! 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!
The Pattern is designed for an intermediate sewer, but as with all Tilly and the Buttons patterns you are carefully guided through the sewing process with a colour step by step guide. The paper pattern comes in sizes UK 6-24.
Our version of the Lyra dress is made in a floral swishy viscose and we think it looks lovely but have a look at our viscose collection for other patterns or we have some gorgeous cotton lawns in stock for a lighter Summer dress.
