Bettine is an easy-peasy throw-it-over-your-head dress that's cute, comfortable and very wearable. The dress features a blousy bodice with scoop neckline, kimono sleeves, turn-up cuffs, elasticated waistline and tulip skirt. You can make it with a plain skirt or with in-seam hip pockets, and there's also the option to add cuff tabs to the sleeves. Perfect for beginners, it has no darts, fastenings or set-in sleeves.
Light- to medium-weight drapey fabrics, such as viscose (rayon), cotton voile, lawn or chambray. If you’re a confident stitcher, try a delicate crêpe or georgette.
