By Hand London - Tamzin Dress


Tamzin is the quintessential folk dress that will have you twirling through summer year after year! Featuring an ornamental square neckline, princess seams, two different waist tie options, full 3/4 length sleeves and a gathered skirt - both with a satisfying tuck detail. Even better, the neckline is finished with an external facing, so you can have all the fun in the world experimenting with embroidery or beading to create a beautifully embellished neckline.

Sizes: This pattern is available in two size ranges:

  • UK Size 6-24 (up to 51" bust)
  • UK Size 16 - 34 (up to 61 1/4" bust)

Fabric suggestions: Tamzin will work beautifully in a multitude of light - medium weight woven fabrics. We love linen, viscose rayon / tencel, soft or floaty cottons, double gauze and drapey silks.
