Your Makes!

Ooh you've been sewing up some treats for our drooling pleasure recently!



First up, some irresistibly cheery Megan dresses (pattern in Love at First Stitch). So bright and colourful! Janet made hers in VELVET - can I just have this, please? And the one on the right made by Freckles & Ginger set many a heart aflutter on Instagram!


I love how these Mimi blouses (pattern also in my book), made by Catrin and Meg, look pretty yet relaxed at the same time - the kind of top you can throw on with jeans and still feel like you've made an effort.


Some of you will know the super talented knitting designer Andi from blog Untangling Knots. How cute is this Miette skirt that she made? The other Miette shown here was made by Nicola - the tartan works so well with the flared design.


Cerian has made so many beautiful creations from Love at First Stitch, and this Lilou dress is no exception. I love her choice of bold floral print, and the scallop neckline looks so cute. Andrea dip-dyed the fabric for her Lilou dress and the result is a stunner! The dress featured in her first ever blog post - do go say hello and welcome Andrea to the blogosphere...


I'm a big fan of Katie's relaxed style, and the casual design of the Coco top suits her perfectly. And when I saw Deepika's funnel neck Coco dress, I literally screamed out loud - adorbs!! Just perfect for Autumn.


Lisa decided to shorten the sleeves on her chambray Mathilde blouse - I really like the result. Martina stuck with the original design and looks effortlessly stylish.


I'm including two things made by Lynne because her fabric choices are so inspired. She made the Clemence skirt using African wax print (the instructions for the skirt are in my book) - the material gives the skirt a lovely structured shape. And the Margot pyjamas (pattern also in my book) are made from jersey - they look so comfy, and I'm totally copying this idea!


Last but not least, I couldn't resist including a couple more Megan dresses - because these are just gorgeous. Grace made hers in this beautiful vintage cotton floral print - I love the way she almost but not quite blends into the wallpaper! And Dorien made her ridiculously cute Megan dress for a Moonrise Kingdom-inspired shoot - it's an entry in a movie-based sewing contest, go check out her gorgeous photos and the other entries!

As always this is just a fraction of things you've been making with Tilly and the Buttons patterns, so do go check out some more in the Maker Galleries on Pinterest. If you've made something with one of the patterns that you want to see up there, tweet me your best photo or send us a link through this page. Can't wait to see!

  1. Yeah, me too! I was wondering what Miette would look like in a woolen fabric, and Nicola proves us that it's gorgeous!

  2. These are all so lovely! I'm having issues with one of mine though (that's right, i've made more than 1 haha!) I put some gold shank buttons on the front but they seem a bit heavy for the skirt. How do I rectify this? Or am I going to have to surrender and use different buttons! You can see the skirt on my blog...

    1. Hmm... I don't know any fixes for that, I'm afraid - you might have to try some different buttons :(

  3. Thank you for featuring my makes! I just finished another pair of Margot jammies last night - they are so easy to make. I love the short sleeve Mathilde, and all the Megans.

  10. One of my favourite things is seeing different people's interpretations of the same pattern. Really inspiring to see the different fabric choices and colour combinations and shapes. Great fun!

    1. Megan works well in medium-weight fabric that has a bit of body to hold the shape but which won't restrict movement - you might find upholstery fabric a bit constrictive at the sleeves, but it depends how heavy it is. Otherwise try poplin, twill, sateen, quilting weight cotton, lightweight linen, double knit, or medium-weight crepe. I can't wait to see what you make!
