Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tops

I have absolutely no idea why I haven’t made this pattern sooner! I’ve had it sat on my shelf for ages and I’ve also had some fabric to use for ages too. When I saw the heart jersey fabric that Rachel Wain bought from Barry’s in Birmingham which she posted on Twitter, I just had… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tops

Pattern Testing

Kommatia Patterns Cocoon Cardigan

I was lucky enough to pattern test the SW603 cocoon style cardigan for Kommatia Patterns. I loved the sound of the cardigan from the description and was sure it would fill a gap in my wardrobe. I absolutely loved the pattern when I received it from the designer, Jessica Crevier. I decided to use the… Continue reading Kommatia Patterns Cocoon Cardigan

Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper Two

As we're getting to colder weather here in the UK, jumpers are definitely on the sewing agenda and I had a good amount of fabric left over after making my latest Burda jumper. It just so happened that Sewn were having a sewing afternoon at the shop as well. I wasn't able to go to the last one… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper Two

Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper

A few weeks ago I attended the Sew Brizzle meet up and picked up some Ponte Roma in the fabric swap. I've never used this type of jersey before and boy, does my overlocker dislike it! It's slightly thicker than t-shirt jersey but not as thick as the organic jersey I used for my second Walkley dress. It's also… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper

Make It Yourself Walkley Dress Two

I've been eyeing the gorgeous Triangles jersey from Bloome Copenhagen for ages and after the success of my first Walkley dress, I finally knew what I would make with it. In my post about my first Walkley dress, I said I would refine the neckline, which I did by lowering the neckline and shoulder seams down by 4cm. This really helped take… Continue reading Make It Yourself Walkley Dress Two

Make It Yourself Walkley Dress

My recent makes have been a bit blah and remain unfinished at the moment and I really needed a quick, satisfying make so I wouldn't lose my sew-jo; I decided to make the Walkley dress from Make It Yourself Collection. I cut the small size out - naughty girl couldn't be bothered to trace the pattern… Continue reading Make It Yourself Walkley Dress

Love for the Bettine Pattern By Tilly and the Buttons

After a disastrous bank holiday weekend where my fiance had a motorbike accident in some woods whilst green laning, (thankfully he only damaged a ligament in his knee and he is healing very quickly already) and I had the biggest sewing mess up ever, I followed the advice of my Instagram friends and made a… Continue reading Love for the Bettine Pattern By Tilly and the Buttons

Tilly and the Buttons Jersey Bettine Dress

I bought some navy blue and white jersey fabric from the Sewing For Pleasure show and earmarked it for the New Look 6000 as it says you can use jerseys on the back of the pattern envelope. I wasn't sure the fabric would hold the collar or the waist details of option C very well… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Jersey Bettine Dress

Sewing For Pleasure and Hobbycrafts Show

I thought I'd share my experience at the NEC yesterday as it was the first time I'd been to the Sewing For Pleasure and Hobbycrafts show. One of the deciding factors to go on the Friday was me and my friend Lucy thought it might be a bit quieter. Well if that was quiet then… Continue reading Sewing For Pleasure and Hobbycrafts Show
