Romy top and dress sewing pattern

ROMY TOP AND DRESS

Regular price £15.50

DIY RIVIERA STYLE

Upgrade your casual me-made wardrobe with this stylish (and comfy!) top and dress. The optional back ties or contrast binding add a fun twist to the classic Breton or t shirt dress.

Romy has a modern loose fit and high slash envelope neckline, with choice of cap, three quarter or full length sleeves for year-round style. Designed for knit fabrics, whip it up on either a regular sewing machine or overlocker (serger). Once you’ve made one, you’ll be hooked! 

Romy 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.

PRINTED PATTERN - You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full-scale pattern sheets and a colour instruction booklet. (Alternatively, you can order the digital version to print and assemble at home, or have the A0 format printed at a copy shop.) 

SKILL LEVEL - Improvers

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS Medium-weight low stretch knit fabrics such as jersey or interlock. You could also use ponte for the long sleeve version. Avoid anything too light-weight, drapey or clingy. If you’re making the back ties version, avoid anything too bulky.
