Tilly & The Buttons Indigo Smock Top + Dress Pattern
Indigo can be made as a bum-covering top that is perfect for wearing with leggings or skinny jeans for everyday style. The dress option looks equally as lovely in floaty viscose fabrics that give it a dressed up, party feel, or in a cotton lawn that is just the ticket for a dreamy day dress.
Sew it with classic gathered seams or elevate it to a stand-out piece in your wardrobe with the pretty exposed frill seam.
Indigo has a bodice shaped with bust darts, gently curved empire waistline, and floaty gathered skirt. Make it as a top with dipped hem ending at the low hip, or a knee-length dress with straight hem and pockets (yay!). Choose from three-quarter flounce sleeves or slim-fitting bracelet sleeves. You’ll want to wear one every day of the week.
Indigo includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
