My friend found this elephant fabric earlier this year and sent me a picture of it, asking if I’d like her to buy it for me. Of course I wanted it! I am a bit of a sucker for fabrics with animals printed on them, and these elephants and their mottled white/grey/black background are really lovely.
For the dress, I used the new Bettine Dress pattern from Tilly and the Buttons (http://shop.tillyandthebuttons.com/collections/all/products/bettine). It’s a soft and drapey dress with an elasticated waist and fantastic deep pockets. It’s a very easy make, simple but elegant, and easy to make both casual and show-stopping.
