Lyra is the latest dress pattern by Tilly and the Buttons, a relaxed floaty dress with a number of style options. This ultra-cool shirt dress has 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.
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!
Light to medium weight fabrics, such as cotton lawn, voile or chambray, double gauze, viscose, tencel or lighter weight needle cord.
