Tilly and the Buttons – Stretch! – new sewing book review
This week on the blog we are chatting to Tilly and the Buttons about her new sewing book “Stretch”, which is out this week. We headed over to Tilly Towers a couple of weeks ago to get an insider peek at all the samples from the new sewing book and to hear which is Tilly’s favourite.
The sewing book is all about learning to sew with stretch fabrics and includes six full-size printed sewing patterns. But that’s not all, it also has pattern pieces and ideas to customise and change these six patterns. Ultimately you could create an entire new wardrobe! The fabrics you will learn to sew with include jersey, Ponte de Roma, sweater knit, sweatshirt fleece, stretch velvet and sequin knits. As with all Tilly’s patterns, there are step-by-step instructions with photos to guide you through the making process and plenty of tips and tricks.
Also you don’t need an overlocker for this book, you can make all the patterns with a zigzag or stretch stitch on your regular sewing machine. If you do have an overlocker machine though, you’ll get lots of help on how to use it in the book.
The patterns included in the book are: Bibi skirt and pinafore, Frankie T-shirt, Freya sweater and dress, Stella Hoodie, stella joggers and Joni dress.
