Your Makes!

It's my favourite time - time to look at some of the gorgeous things you've been making with T&TB patterns recently!



Jo's new favourite blouse is Mimi from Love at First Stitch, sewn in this cute Atelier Brunette fabric. Verity swapped the short pleated-hem sleeves that come with the pattern for longer sleeves - I'm so going to copy this idea!


You can't beat a Breton stripe dress. Heather added the funnel neck option to her second version of the Coco dressChloe is teaming her stripey pocket version with her growing baby bump; and Freya has kept her Coco classic - it looks awesome with those red shoes!


Somehow the Megan dress (pattern also included in Love at First Stitch) looks good on everyone, and this tartan version by Laura is no exception - such a great style for the office. Lou snazzed up the empire waist bodice on her Megan dress with a little faux button placket and bow - cuteness alert!



The Miette skirt pattern is super duper easy to make and looks really cute on - as evidenced by our models with the infectious smiles, Leigh and Erin. I love how they've both styled the skirt, it looks great with a close-fitting jersey top.


Another gorgeous Mimi blouse, this one made by Leigh - such a pretty colour palette. Pauline used a nautical print for her Clemence skirt, and added gingham pockets. Both these projects are included in Love at First Stitch.



I love the classic style of this polka dot Lilou dress (pattern in Love at First Stitch) made by Tiz - if you look carefully, you can see the pleated panels running down the sides. And how adorable is this Star Wars version by Amelie & Atticus? Click through to see the full Vadar Chic look!


Monika made the Mathilde blouse in a drapey navy mystery fabric - the solid colour really shows off the tucks down the front. Katie was inspired by Julie to use a sheer black fabric on the sleeves - soooo elegant.



You can't go wrong with Nani Iro fabric - I love this paint splodge print that Lauren used to make a Delphine skirt. Shauni looks adorable in her monochrome Megan dress - she drafted that collar herself, nice touch! Both these patterns are included in Love at First Stitch.


Jen wore Cocos all week long for OWOP (the 'One Week, One Pattern' challenge). I particularly love the red and stripe design of this one - very Boden, non? Sophie used a chevron fabric for her funnel neck top version of Coco - looks ace!


Catherine made an adorable version of the Francoise dress in green. If you don't know her blog, go check it out, especially if you like sixties styles - you're in for a treat. I literally yelped with delight when I saw this version of Francoise by Sandee - check out those kitty pockets!!

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling so inspired to sew right now! There's loads more inspiration in the Maker Galleries on Pinterest - go see what people have been making. If you've sewn something with a Tilly and the Buttons pattern, send us your best photo for the Maker Gallery - you can tweet us, email us or send us a link through this page (unfortunately I can't pin from Instagram). We can't wait to see!

    2. That's brilliant. Beware if you go for crepe - it was a nightmare to sew!

  4. Thank you for showing my Coco dress and for your lovely comments. As my OWOP showed it certainly is a versatile pattern. Made the Delphine skirt before Christmas and I love the shape of it too. Keep up the great work!

  10. Hi Tilly! Lovely examples of your patterns. I just got the book and can't wait to start! What is the best way to trace the patterns? I am not sure what exact type of tools to use! Thanks

  11. Hi Tilly! Thank you so much for featuring my miette! I've dabbled in sewing for years but could never fully commit myself which resulted in lots of failed experiments and lots of frustration. That is, until I found your awesome blog and purchased your awesome book! You're such a wonderful teacher. Now I'm hooked and ecstatic about sewing. After I finish my Lily dress I'll be starting my Megan that I'm very excited about. Thank you for doing what you do!

  13. I really love Shaunis dress! I think I will also try and add a collar to my Megan dress when I sew it :) (fabric is just waiting for me)
