The Betty Dress is an advanced beginner pattern. We recommend you’ve made a couple of garments before and had a go at inserting an invisible zip.

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.
The Betty Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

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). The test square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
At the end of the checkout process you will receive an email with the link to your pattern and instructions.
