Ooh, now that @tillybuttons has gone live with her cover reveal I can share what I spotted at Frankfurt Book Fair back in October! This book looks sooooo great. Out in March 2018. .
Sitôt sec sitôt cousu...
J'ai enfin assemblé mon pdf de #cocodress de #tillyandthebuttons et je crois que je vais le faire à toutes les sauces ! Le basic seyant et hyper versatile par excellence !😁
Coco is a bit camera shy; it's almost impossible to capture her true colour - a luscious, rich purple. She's going to be a world traveler though because she just came out of the suitcase virtually wrinkle free.
Pattern: Coco//Tilly and the Buttons
Fabric: Brushed knit//Discount Fabrics, SF
A mostly me made outfit! It’s a Tilly and the Buttons Agnes tee with a Pauline Alice Rosari skirt. This shirt was my first attempt at sewing jersey. It’s an Art Gallery Fabrics knit and from Hawthorne Threads. It was a really good learning experience for me. It took a few tries to finish the sleeves and hem it and I would definitely recommend knit stay tape for really stretchy jersey like this one. It helps a lot with fabric that wants to stretch out or curl up. As for the skirt, the fabric was originally supposed to be a hollyburn skirt, but I realized when the skirt was practically done it was so stiff that I looked like I was a big triangle. I managed to salvage the fabric and recut a rosari skirt from it. I really enjoy this pattern and would love to do it again with fabric that’s a little less school uniform-ish. It’s some kind of cotton blend I found at Mood Fabrics and I thought the navy would go with some of my more busy prints.

The blog is out there! A shorter effort than I’d originally planned but I may expand on it another day. A big thank to you @tillybuttons who took the time to reply to a fangirling seamstress with an idea. Link to the blog in my profile. #tillyandthebuttons#designer#seamstressblog#blog#seamstress
#mybestnine it was so hard to pick just nine makes, so this is technically ten with my #gingerjeans and #ebonytee in the same photo! I have included my recent #soierinskirt and #tillyandthebuttons#sewingrosa#sewingbettine#simplysewingmag selena skirt I made for a wedding and my travelling trousers and slouch top. My self drafted dress which I loved wearing in summer and finally my travel bag made from beautiful wax print from Tanzania :) Loved seeing everyone's makes on Instagram this year can't wait to see what everyone makes next year!
Have I told you that mamy has been a tad obsessed with sewing lately? 😂 I must say that it's not too bad to wear a scarf these days though, especially if I am taking a nap and don't realise what mamy is doing to me! #sevadoaconoscerelaziaRossellamelametto
Here’s my #2017bestnine 😊 Sorry to anyone who has sent me a message recently and not received a reply yet. I’ve been so busy! I recently made a last minute velvet dress and clutch bag for a Christmas party so hopefully I’ll get some time to take some photos soon!
I like big pockets and I cannot lie 😆😁
Enjoy your weekend friends!❄️ Sn: I think I will be living in this skirt all winter. It’s already becoming my favorite! So stylish and so much movement with this wrap skirt. I even wore it when we ventured through the snow and picked out our Christmas tree 😊🎄
Skirt: handmade 🙋🏾
Pattern: Miette skirt by @tillybuttons
Fabric: denim from @joann_stores
Sew track 🎶: Gwen stefani’s “You make it feel like Christmas” 🌟...duh! 😜
Newest make! @tillybuttons Cleo Pinafore Dress in a sweet little navy and white remnant piece of jacquard from @wearethefabricstore.
It was such a fun little project to put together and Tilly's pattern and instructions were an absolute pleasure to use. Next time I'll grade down a size at the waist as it's definitely more gapey there than I'd like!
I added 2.5 inches to the full length version and that's about perfect for being able to sit and bend over without flashing. #sewingtall#pinaforedress#imakemyownclothes#sewing#sewingcleo#makersgonnamake#tillyandthebuttons#wearethefabricstore
Can't believe I've waited this long to make a Coco dress! The pattern has been in my stash for about a year! 🙈 I lengthened it by 5 inches and took a bit of the flare out so it wouldn't be as floaty. I can't decide what colour to do the pockets. Pink? Red? Yellow? 🤔 So until then I'll just keep trying to put my phone in a non existent pocket! 🙈 #cantlivewithoutpockets#thereisgoingtobeaphonerelatedaccident ! #sewingcoco#tatbcoco#tillyandthebuttons
PS. A special thanks to @girlcharleeuk for the amazing ponte fabric! 😊
