Book Description

Sewing doesn’t have to be complicated, and you don’t need lots of time to make your own clothes. While life is speeding up, this book will help you slow down and squeeze in time to get your creative fix.

Tilly and the Buttons: Make It Simple features a collection of stylish and stress-free projects that you can stitch up in a few hours. It includes six full-scale dressmaking patterns, from which you can make 24 projects. All of the garments are quick to sew and easy to fit, with a short supply list and no fiddly fastenings from a perfect T-shirt and stylish playsuit to a wear-with-everything pinafore dress and cosy cardigan.

Make It Simple is for both beginners looking for easy projects and experienced stitchers wanting the instant gratification that comes with a speedy make. Whatever your skill level, you’ll learn the secret of how to take sewing shortcuts while still getting a great-looking finish. With the help of clear step-by-step photographs and Tilly’s award-winning instructions, this book will help you create a dream wardrobe in no time.

About the Author

About Tilly Walnes

On a whim and feeling the urge to fill a creative void, Tilly Walnes signed up for a three-day dressmaking course. It was love at first stitch. Her new-found joy in sewing her own clothes  but lack of friends who could also sew  led Tilly to start her blog, Tilly and the Buttons, so that she could share her experiences and swap tips with other would-be dressmakers. Within three years of first threading a needle Tilly's blog is the most popular sewing blog in the UK and she appeared as a contestant in the first series of The Great British Sewing Bee, the only contestant to design and draft her own garment designs. Between teaching dressmaking classes at sewing schools in both London and Birmingham, Tilly is developing her own range of dressmaking patterns.


Simply Sewing

Here she's put together some super-speedy projects that can be finished in just a few hours. Choose from six dressmaking patterns, from which you can make 24 easy fit, fuss-free items.
