Hey Everyone, 

I really don't want you to get sick of me talking about how much I love this dress, but I couldn't not share it here on the blog as well. You may have also already seen it in my last Sew & Tell Video on my Youtube Channel. Sorry about that. But it's just such a great pattern and it's the perfect make for all of us at the moment, spending more time at home, but still wanting to look stylish. 

It's got it all - comfort, colour, pockets, style and it's so easy to wear. So, for those of you who don't follow me on Instagram, The pattern is the BILLIE Sweater and Dress by Tilly and the Buttons. It's such a great pattern for beginners and advanced sewists too. The pocket style and construction is also a masterpiece. Another fabulous pattern from my fave buttons. 

The fabric I chose was one from my shop. I used our Baby Blue Sweatshirting with Baby Blue Cotton Ribbing. They're not the exact same colour but I actually really like the different hue. I cannot tell you how soft and cosy this fabric is and it pre washed really well with minimal shrinkage (always wash your sweatshirts and stretch fabrics before cutting out). I've worn it to death already and definitely need to make another. Well, once I've finished all the other hundred projects anyway! 

I hope I have (possibly) inspired you to make something super comfy. I cannot rate this Billie pattern highly enough. Especially with more of us working from home. Now quick! Get making!

Happy Handmade everyone!
