Tilly and the Buttons – Online Now!

We’ve just re-stocked the fabulous Tilly and the Buttons garment patterns and added a few new to us whilst we were at it!

The Coco is Tilly’s iconic first pattern and one that we get asked for over and over, it’s an ideal first jersey pattern and the one pattern sets you up to make both a top and a dress!

Inside all of Tilly’s pattern’s are beautiful instruction booklets that are so easy to follow, all have photo’s and text and a really good glossary, perfect for learning all the relevant sewing terms!

Here are the patterns we currently have in stock:

Watch out for news on new patterns from Tilly next week!

Vignette by Aneela Hoey

We were so excited when our favourite British designer Aneela Hoey announced that she was now designing fabrics for Cloud 9 Fabrics! Aneela produced some gorgeous whimsical fabrics during her time at Moda but her new collections with Cloud 9 feel somewhat more grown up and yet they retain a certain element of whimsy to them.

Vignette_CollageWe chose these 6 beautiful fabrics from the collection of organic quilting cottons and we also got the bottom right fabric in double gauze, perfect for dressmaking!

We had the lovely Hadley make us up some sample purses for the shop so we could highlight just how gorgeous these prints really are!

cateyevignetteThe pattern is called the Cat Eye Pouch and is a free tutorial on the lovley Sherri’s website! You should really check out Sherri’s tutorial’s as they are so well written and there are so many to choose from too!
