Tilly and the Buttons: Stretch!: Make Yourself Comfortable Sewing with Knit Fabrics [9781787131170]

(4 reviews) Write a Review

Tilly and the Buttons: Stretch! offers perfect proof that easy-to-wear clothes can be seriously stylish with a collection of outfits that combine the comfort of stretch fabrics with Tilly Walnes' signature look.

The book includes complete, full-size patterns. Even experienced stitchers are often wary of working with stretch knit fabrics, but in this book Tilly demystifies the techniques needed and shows how to sew stretchy makes on a regular sewing machine - no need for a fancy overlocker. However, if you are already an overlocker owner, the book offers a user-friendly introduction to threading and stitching with this machine too.

Aimed at dressmakers who have grasped the basics and want to expand their sewing horizons, Tilly's tried-and-tested, learn-as-you-make approach is structured around five made-to-measure, speedy-to-sew garments. Tilly's friendly instructions and the clear step-by-step photographs are accompanied by lots of tips and tricks to make your sewing a breeze, and the multiple variations and ideas will help you customise your garment to suit your own style.

    Excellent book

    Posted by Marilyn on 27th Mar 2021

    I am new to stretch sewing so I bought this book which includes 5 patterns. They will need to be traced off as there are patterns on both sides of the paper so don't think you have patterns missing, I nearly did! There is no problem tracing them. A great book, very clear and I love just browsing through it even when I am not sewing. Definitely worth the money.
