Recommended fabrics and fabric requirements
The Betty Dress works beautifully in a variety of different fabrics, including light to medium weight cotton and cotton lawn, rayon, crepe and even lightweight wools. Because of the nature of the circle skirt, we recommend avoiding any strong one-way directional prints. For inspiration and to find the perfect fabric, have a look at our specially curated suggestions.
See the sizing chart for fabric requirements. (Note that there are two back covers for each different neckline – make sure you are using the right one.)
So what is a PDF pattern? A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home. Simply download, print, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). If you are having trouble printing your pattern, check out our Guide to Assembling Your PDF Sewing Pattern, over on the blog.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A DOWNLOADABLE PATTERN WHICH YOU WILL HAVE TO PRINT AT HOME. At the end of the checkout process you will automatically receive an email with the link to your pattern and instructions. If you do not receive this we recommend checking your Junk Mail folder, as sometimes they like to hide in there!
