PATTERN FORMAT

Cute, comfy and effortlessly stylish, the Indigo smock has no fiddly fastenings so you can throw it on and go. Sew it with classic gathered seams or elevate it to a stand-out piece in your wardrobe with the pretty exposed frill seam.

Indigo has a bodice shaped with bust darts, gently curved empire waistline, and floaty gathered skirt. Make it as a top with dipped hem ending at the low hip, or a knee-length dress with straight hem and pockets (yay!). Choose from three-quarter flounce sleeves or slim-fitting bracelet sleeves. You’ll want to wear one every day of the week.

Want to get even more out of your pattern? Get the PDF Indigo add-on pattern, or choose PDF bundle option above, which includes extra pattern pieces and instructions for a midi skirt tier, button back opening, short ruffle sleeves and puffed sleeves.

Indigo is available in TWO size bands. If you are in between the two size charts, check out this post to see which one is right for you. Remember to select the option you want when purchasing.

          I really enjoyed sewing the indigo dresses. Good instructions as always and good fit

          Thank you for sharing your Indigo makes Tracy x

          Beautifully drafted pattern a pleasure to sew

          You just know a pattern is well drafted when every single piece you sew comes together perfectly. INDIGO is one such pattern. I realise this is a 'smock' type fitting and baggy clothes just don't suit my diminutive figure so I went by the finished garment measurements and allowed the ease I thought would be good. Wonderful result. Looks great! Only had to lengthen the sleeves a bit and it was job done. I see more INDIGO makes in my future. Thanks to the Tilly and the Buttons team for doing such a great job again!

          Thank you Margaret for taking the time to leave you kind comments x

          Sizing is way off

          Hi- I just wanted to say how disappointed I am in your indigo pattern. I started making clothes because it’s hard to find clothes to fit my mid sized body. It’s hard to measure myself and read a pattern to find out I’m a size 16 or 18 but I’m 44 in the bust, 37 waist and 44 in the hips. Which according to your pattern was a size 8- or size 16- which is mentally hard for me to grapple with. Then to make the whole dress, only to discover it is MASSIVE on me. I thought you were an inclusive pattern comapny and I’m just so disappointed

          I'm so sorry to read you're disappointed with your Indigo make. I do understand as I know how disheartening it can be to buy something off the rack and it not fit, BUT that is the beauty of making your own wardrobe because once you learn how to fit the pattern to your unique shape you’ll end up with the comfiest of makes.

          We always recommend using your own body measurements to select the right size for you and we also offer lots and lots of free sewing tutorials on our website. We have a fitting post for Indigo which will help tweak your pattern to fit you (https://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/2019/09/fitting-indigo.html) and we also recommend making a toile first to iron out your fitting issues before cutting into your bestest fabric.

          We are also on hand by email if you need extra support just drop Abi and Nikki a message to sewing@tillyandthebuttons.com

          Sew easy!

          I'm still in the middle of making this pattern (the first I have ever done) but I have to say, as a complete beginner who has never sewed anything in her life, this is so so easy to follow! I usually need a YouTube video to watch alongside making things but all I have to do with this pattern is read it and do it. It's very very easy to understand. Even though it's meant for confident beginners (which I am not at all!) I find this very easy. I can't praise this company enough. Thank you Tilly and the buttons for making these patterns so easy to understand, even for a complete sewing noob like me!

          Thank you Jay, this is the best message because this is exactly what we want all our newbie sewists to feel. Sewing doesn't have to be difficult or scary. Team Buttons x

          Indigo smock top

          By far the best pattern I have purchased in terms of paper quality and instructions. Very easy to cut out and follow the detailed booklet with pictures enclosed. This was my first pattern purchased from Tilly and the Buttons but it won't be the last, loved everything about it

          Hi Sue, thank you so much for your lovely words and for sharing your make. Lovely to hear we've got a new Button fan x
