But, not just any shirt dress the totally on trend Lyra shirt dress from our fav, Tily and the Buttons. If you want to swoosh around in effortless (and mega comfy) style, then Lyra is for you.
On this class we will guide you every step of the way as you create your shirt dress. This pattern features an oversized, blousy bodice with bust darts, button front opening, two-piece collar and stand, and, of course, side seam pockets. The gathered skirt can be hemmed just above the knee, or add the midi panel for a trendy tiered look. Definitely an impressive sew!
Choose between short sleeves for easy-breezy summer style or full length billowy sleeves with elasticated cuffs. Wear Lyra loose and floaty, or add an optional narrow tie to cinch you in at the waist.
Endlessly versatile, pick a cooling cotton for the heat, cosy needlecord for the winter or a drapey viscose for added swish!
