Let Tilly Walnes inspire you with her jargon-busting tutorials, down-to-earth attitude, and adorable dressmaking style, showing you that making your own clothes is so much more enjoyable than buying them. - Build your skills and confidence one project at a time: new techniques are introduced when you need them.- Step-by-step photographs take the head-scratching out of sewing.- Includes 7 full-scale, multisize patterns, ready to be traced and used again and again.- Tilly's hints and tips for making sewing part of your lifestyle, adding your own special touch to any sewing project, and even how to polish your signature style.

Peppered throughout the book are Tilly's top sewing tips, including everything from what to look out for when buying--or borrowing--your first sewing machine, to how to behave in a fabric shop so that you appear like an expert, to techniques for pressing perfection.

About Tilly Walnes

On a whim and feeling the urge to fill a creative void, TILLY WALNES signed up for a three-day dressmaking course. It was love at first stitch. Her newfound joy in sewing her own clothes--but lack of friends who could also sew--led Tilly to start her blog, "Tilly and the Buttons," so that she could share her experiences and swap tips with other would-be dressmakers. Within three years of first threading a needle, Tilly's blog is the most popular sewing blog in the UK and she appeared as a contestant in the first season of "The Great British Sewing Bee," the only contestant to design and draft her own garment designs. Between teaching dressmaking classes at sewing schools in both London and Birmingham, Tilly is developing her own line of dressmaking patterns.
