Sister Mintaka presents the Seren sewing pattern by Tilly and the Buttons.
This flirty button-down dress is perfect for picnics in the park or cocktails under the stars. Choose from a pretty neckline flounce or tie-front bodice, with knee-length or midi hemline. Seren has bust darts, wide shoulder straps, a separate waistband for a flattering fit, flowing into a seventies-inspired A-line skirt.
