Tilly and the Buttons Rosa dress

March 10, 2017

Hiya. I’m aware that this is the third post in a row about a TATB pattern, but what can I say? I dig her style, even though her patterns don’t always work out for me (Francoise and Bettine, I’m looking at you).  The Rosa pattern was a gift from my sister-in-law for Christmas, and the Minerva Crafts fairies granted my wishes by providing the needlecord fabric, interfacing and thread in exchange for a blog post.  Seems like a good deal to me!  This pattern worked out really well for me, and I have no complaints at all about it.

It had its first outing to the Knitting and Stitching show at Kensington Olympia, where I encountered a Game of Thrones white walker, a very impressive project by the Embroiderer’s Guild.

I used my Cath Kidston love-heart buttons for this project, which I’ve been holding onto for a couple of years.  I’m really pleased with how they look.

As usual, if you want to read about the making of the dress and to see more photos of it, head on over to Minerva here.  All opinions/writing etc are my own!

      Heart buttons for the win!

    That is so cute with the heart buttons! They are such a lovely pop of colour. I have seen a few projects made with the Minerva needlecord now and I really want to try it!

    Love this! Question: how do you keep from getting all linty in that fabric? Or am I just an extra strong lint magnet? 😉

      Because it’s extra fine needlecord it is actually not too bad for collecting lint! I’ve worn it three times now and haven’t noticed any.

    Love the red buttons and top stitching against the blue. Looks great on you.

      Thank you. Red and navy is always a good combo 😊

    This is brilliant!! I love it! I’ve seen a few versions in needlecord, and am sorely tempted. I have the pattern but not the fabric… Also, loving the contrasting top stitching.
