Toddington, Bedf...






Here’s one I made earlier. The photographs aren’t that great, but hope it allows you to see well enough.
The dress itself was not too difficult to make, but I hated covering the buttons and my husband had to help with them and he did a good job too!

The dress is fully lined with anti-static lining.

Material Notes

Rayon Lining fabric




Garment Type
Casual, Classic
Polyester, Rayon

    cool! I wonder where I can find button covering kits in Israel! It sounds like fun :-) Especially for jackets and dresses.

    Very nice dress, though it seems a little bit tight. Other than that, perfect!

      Yes, by the time I got to wear it, I had put on some weight, but nevermind… Thanks anyway.

    Good job! This pattern is in my stash so I love seeing other dresses people have made with it. I love the color you chose.

      Thank you. It is much better looking than it looks in these photos (it’s a little tight on me now). I look forward to seeing yours. :-)

    Great work! I love the buttons and the shape of the bodice. I have never made buttons covered by self fabric! Is it difficult? Do you have a tutorial you can recommend?

      Thank you. I actually thought that it was easy, but that wasn’t the case at first. Eventually I realised how to do it. I cut the fabric about half a centimetre outside of the button and then, gathered it around the edges with double threaded hand needle and pulled it until tight, then put the cover on and clicked it together. Don’t know if that makes sense…

      You can buy a button covering kit! I’ve actually never seen buttons to cover that don’t come with the “kit”. It’s super duper easy! The kit comes with a plastic thing and a little rubber “button presser” (that’s what I call it). You use the plastic thing to you lay your fabric on (after cutting it), then you top it off with the button and cap, and you use the little “button presser” to just squish it all together until it the cap clicks on! Super easy and no sewing needed!

      Good luck. I looked everywhere including the Internet and could not find them, so if you find one in Israel, please send me address of the shop :-).
