Totally Modern Tilli:

Our sample has been created using light weight cotton, with a chiffon yoke/ sleeve combination.

CREATIVE TIPS

Although the Tilli Dress may seem similar to the SAIRA DRESS, this sewing pattern is not only more of a statement piece, but it is also simpler to construct. Ideal for intermediate sewers who are looking to create a more challenging piece, the top half of this dress will push the boundaries. The entire upper section (including square cap-sleeves) has been designed to feature transparent materials such as chiffon, and is entirely finished using only the finest French seams. While construction may be delicate to handle with shifting materials, using more stable materials like organza will make the piece easier to put together. Choosing more stable materials for the job will negate the need for French seams, but bear in mind that this will detract from the overall delicacy of the finished garment.
