Sew your own knockout dress for special occasions or bossing it at the office.

Etta is an elegant fitted dress, shaped with darts at the bust, waist and shoulders. Sleek and flattering, it has a choice of lined cap sleeves or darted three-quarter length sleeves, high-back or stunning V-back neckline, with optional collar and faux pockets. Etta closes with an invisible zip at the back. The hemline hits the bottom of the knee, with a kick pleat for easy movement.

Need some help making the dress? Tilly will take you through all the steps in her video workshop, Sew Your Own Knockout Dress. You'll learn dressmaking techniques, tips and tricks that you can use again and again on future sewing projects - from setting in sleeves to inserting a tidy invisible zip and more.
