{Tilly and the Buttons} Sunshiny Rosa dress

Yellow is the happiest colour. Fact.
Case in point, my Rosa dress by Tilly and the Buttons. See?

I am very proud of my Rosa! It's probably the handmade item I'm most proud of to date. I did a good job all over. Though the collar stand is still a little iffy, but I'm sure that will come with practise. The only reason I'm a little disappointed with it is that there doesn't seem to be space for a top button.That's all. My machine freaked out on the top edges of the pockets as well, so they're not as tidy as I would've liked. But I'd already unpicked twice and the fabric was starting to look a little bit worse for wear. So I thought I'd better just leave it alone.

I made this through the online workshop which was really great. The videos are clear and well made. And I learned a lot from it. The pattern also comes with a shirt variation and you can download the full sleeve if you wish. There are instructions for how to assemble it on Tilly's blog - which I will try soon.

The fit was spot on, as always. The dress is shaped with princess seams, which are incredibly flattering. There's a lot of added details as well, which I love. Like the poinnted, curved back yoke. It was a bit scary to sew but it looks lovely. And the button tab on the sleeves is so cute as well.

The fabric is a gorgeous cotton poplin - yes, it's all I ever use. But it's lovely to cut, sew and press, it's good in cold and warm weather, I love wearing it and it's durable. This one was bought - I *think* - in Norfolk, a couple of years ago.

I see a few more Rosas in my future. I already another version cut out and I plan on making a shirt version, too.
Oh, except the Nyhavn picture, all the others were taken at Lake Windermere this weekend. My husband did his 2nd triathlon and a great time was had by all - although I'm not sure how applicable this is to the ones who took part in the triathlon... I love the Lake District. How was your weekend?
