Indigo Top + Smock Dress | Tilly & the Buttons


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 standout piece with the pretty, exposed frill seam.

Indigo has a bodice shaped with bust darts, a gently curved empire waistline and a floaty gathered skirt. Can be made as a top with a dipped hem ending at the low hip, or a knee-length dress with a straight hem and pockets. Choose from 3/4 flounce or bracelet sleeves.


Fabric (see below), matching and contrast thread, 0.3m interfacing, sewing machine and basic tools.
