My own Bettine dress / pattern by Tilly and the Buttons

I am so pleased to have been able to make a Bettine dress… I love the result and I look forward to making more with buttons, with tabs, in a flowy material, in denim…. here begins Bettine madness. Thank you Tilly!

I got my material from the Marché Saint Pierre in Paris… not the one online (you get redirected to Coupons Saint Pierre, which only offers material in a given size). The shop spreads over 4 floors with not that much stuff, but I found some of it was quite nice. Price wise, it is pretty standard.

Here is the fabric I got:

It is a double gauze cotton, it feels like a mousseline, super light and soft… I think you are supposed to use it for baby linen… oh well, it was yellow, it had clouds and triangles, I liked it straight away 😍

The pattern was very well explained, the booklet is in colour and each step is pictured. You cannot go wrong.

Here is my first finished bettine:

I will take another picture outside, since it was impossible to get the right light indoors. I love it, it is so preetttyyy.
