Your Makes!

Hello! It’s Laura again here, looking at all the amazing things you’ve been creating with T&TB sewing patterns over the last month. Here's a little selection...

We're really impressed with Katie’s makes from Love At First Stitch. Her fabric choices are inspired, using a fun woodland design for her Megan dress and a stunning flamingo print for her Mimi blouse. We love her style!

Tilly went to the Knitting and Stitching Show the other week, where her friend Lauren's lovely mum Fiona surprised her by wearing a gorgeous Mimi blouse that she made using Liberty 'Queue for the Zoo' fabric! Another good pal of Tilly's, Zoe - who teaches some of our workshops - has also made a Mimi blouse, choosing a cute ditzy blue floral. (Pattern from Love At First Stitch.)

The Miette skirt is great for the Summer, but also looks good with tights and winter shoes. Yvonne is keeping it classic with her polka dot version, while Erin has used a gem green corduroy - they both look so stylish.

The Megan dress from Love At First Stitch has been particularly popular again this month - it's a great make now the weather is getting warmer. We love Hilde's gingham version with added collar, and Amarjeet is looking very elegant in her Megan dress, accessorised with pearls.

More Megans! Zollie is all set for summer with her mint green version and cute white sandals, while Pamela loved making her dress in a cheerful bright pink.

Claire has used this lovely Atelier Brunette fabric for her first Clemence skirt (project instructions in Love At First Stitch), while Pascaline has added a crazily cute bow to her version.

Lauren is is popping up again, this time in her adorable Francoise dress sewn using a dotted burgundy chambray. Marina has added some lovely details to her long-sleeved version, using a contrast print on the collar, cuffs and hem.

We all love to lounge around in our PJs, and Elena looks very excited to be wearing her Margot pyjamas! Donna has sewn her PJs in a cosy floral flannel. (Pattern from Love At First Stitch.)

Taking inspiration from a Tommy Hilfiger design, Marika has made this Coco dress her own, by using navy fabric and ribbon to decorate the cuffs and hem. Carol looks fab in her colourful Coco dress... and can we have that aga, please?

Victoria added some nautical chic to her Delphine skirt by sewing on some adorable buttons, while Cara opted for a monochrome geometric design - complete with added dog! (The pattern is in Love At First Stitch.)

Last but not least, Izy has made a gorgeous bunting print Lilou dress from Love At First Stitch, with scalloped neckline and bow belt – we love it! Frankie tackled some pretty impressive pattern matching with her lovely striped version - want!

It has been soooo much fun looking through all your makes this month. There are loads more great examples in the Maker Galleries on Pinterest - go check it out! 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 we can't pin from Instagram). We can't wait to see!


  1. These all look great, well done ladies.

  2. Thanks for showing off my skirt, guys! I'll blog about it soon. I lurve so many of these! ��

  3. That Charley Harper Coco dress is KILLIN IT for me. Carol has completely inspired me to reappraise the potential of this dress as a vehicle for strong directional prints.

  4. Thankyou for showing my dress! X

  5. Gorgeous makes! I love the first two and the gingham Megan.

  6. I love you Blog! Thank you for the great pictures!!!
    Have a nice day!!!

  7. Thank you for featuring my Margot Pajamas :)

  8. Yay! My Megan dress, how exciting. Thanks for featuring it! They all look so lovely, love the Delphine skirts and the Lilou dresses! Will have to make those next! :)

  9. Hi, just wondering if you think it would work if I added a cuff to the hem of my coco dress? Or would it make the hem heavy? I've pinned it up to see how it would look and I think it would look nice matching the cuffs on my sleeves but I don't want to ruin my dress! Thank you x

  10. Thank you so much for showing my Megan dress! I definitely see things I need to fix, but it's so fun seeing it on here! Everyone's makes are so great! Can't wait to make the Mimi blouse and Lilous dress! - Pamela (davymade.wordpress.com)
