Les 2 étapes clés :
Astuce : j ai rajouté 2 cm pour me laisser suffisamment de marge pour faire mon tunnel ;))
When I took over the seam there over a year, I discovered Tilly and the Buttons and his universe: colorful and mind somewhat « vintage ». Even if the style is somewhat my style, I flashed on the Mathilde blouse by Tilly and the Buttons for detail folds and sleeves « puff » to review 🙂
Tilly offers some timeless models, and the release of the Dress Bettine by Tilly and the buttons, I was stopped by the various options and especially déclinables with several variants of fabrics.
For this first version, I wanted to highlight the details of further pockets, rounded and well drawn. To enhance the skirt « tulip », I took the risk of using this « pierced » flower fabric in « green water » color by Bennytex. It certainly reminds you my « open » set already achieved in navy version whose objective was also to play on the overlay and suggest knees with openwork;))))

Few fan of green color, I must say that the color of « green water » like a « jade » color and of course these two edges of « pierced » flowers. This last detail is key for me because everything is suggested and undeniably falls within the garment. So I took the risk on Bettine dress to use this fabric despite its transparency and fluidity (it’s slippery!). Apart from these pockets, I wanted to further raise the Bettine whose cut remains altogether traditional.
Once cut, I lined all pieces (except of course pockets) limiting the liner above the perforated edges;)))
Overall no particular difficulty, provided the tutorial is very explicit. I found that the « tulip » effect on skirt was too pronounced therefore I extended straight-type pencil skirt (especially since the length is below the knee). The two key steps:
– The realization of the pockets to make sure they are well equi distance from the center and well plated especially if you choose to like me a fluid material.
– The implementation of the « tunnel » for the insertion of elastic. No surprise I resumed the technique of Delphi dress by Named, used on all my pieces with elastic. Beautiful finishes guarantees and quick to make;)))
Tip: I have added 0,8 in to leave me enough room to make my tunnel;))
