Tilly and the Buttons


This pattern is suited for late maternity – trimesters 2 and 3.


Choose from long-line top or knee-length dress, with plain or ruched sweetheart neckline, and cropped, three-quarter or full length sleeves. The stretchy, ruched front bodice creates space for your growing bump throughout pregnancy. The top version can also be made with adjustable drawstrings to gather or loosen the fabric as your shape changes.

Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Agnes 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.
