Tilly and the Buttons Pattern 1026 Romy

DIY Riviera Style Upgrade your casual me-made wardrobe with this stylish (and comfy!) top and dress. The optional back ties or contrast binding add a fun twist to the classic Breton or t shirt dress. Romy has a modern loose fit and high slash envelope neckline, with choice of cap, three quarter or full length sleeves for year-round style. Designed for knit fabrics, whip it up on either a regular sewing machine or overlocker (serger). Once you’ve made one, you’ll be hooked!

Suitable Fabrics
Medium-weight low stretch knit fabrics such as jersey or interlock. You could also use ponte for the long sleeve version. Avoid anything too light-weight, drapey or clingy. If you’re making the back ties version, avoid anything too bulky.
