                  Another love

                  After going back and forward regarding the question "do I need another shirt dress?", I decided that "yes, I do" and bought the Lyra dress this November. And I do not regret it! As with all TATB dresses, there is little I have to do regarding fitting the pattern to my body, only shortening the bodice (as my upper body is 3 cm shorter than regular size 2). I decided to make my first Lyra in a pink baby cord for a casual look. I was drawn to the two-tier look of the midi dress, but wanted the knee-length version, due to the choice of fabric. Using the lengthen and shorting lines in the pattern, I shortened the skirt pattern piece by half, and the midi skirt pattern piece so that the length was equal to the skirt pattern piece (remembering seam allowence). My hack turned out perfect for the fabric, and I just love the look. I also want to applaud the instruction notion stating to try on the bodice before placing the final button holes to make sure there is no gaping across the chest. So important. I have already bought a second fabric to make a regular Lyra midi-dress! I can't wait to see how it will turn out.

                  Yay Kristin! Wow your Lyra hack is inspired. Thank you so much for sharing this. We can't wait to see your other Lyra's please share on our social channels by using the hashtag #sewinglyra. Team Buttons x

                  Was nervous to start this, but was easy to follow!

                  Having never made a dress with buttons, let alone a collar I was pleasantly surprised in how easy the instructions were to follow! Somehow I ended up with a beautiful dress and the collar wasnt so scary and the buttons not at all wonky thanks to excellent pattern marking!

                  Yay! This is such a lovely message, thank you. We try our best to break down those seemingly complicated processes into bite-size steps. Plus we have lots of extra pattern support resources on our blog too. So pleased you've enjoyed your Lyra sewing experience. Team Buttons x

                  I have made a few of these now in different fabrics. Absolutely love this pattern. Will make this time and time again.

                  Wow Fiona, you have been busy. Love all of these thank you so much for sharing. Team Buttons x

                  Lovely pattern

                  A lovely pattern. I have made one Lyra dress. I am working on another one now. The instructions were doable. I did have to read them numerous times before I comprehended the collar construction. The instructions seem to be geared towards an experienced sewer. The dress is intended to have a good bit of ease but I love how it fits and flows.

                  Thank you Sara, please check out our blog for extra pattern support.

                  Loverly to Sew

                  Overall this dress was lovely to make, however, I did have a bit of an issue with the collar, picture instructions could have been a bit more detailed showing exactly which bits to put where.

                  Thanks for sharing Fiona, we have additional resources on our website to help with trickier aspects of the pattern which we hope our customers will find useful. https://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/2021/04/ten-tips-for-sewing-neat-shirt-collar.html
