Indigo top and dress sewing pattern

New in stock! – Tilly & The Buttons Sewing Patterns

We have said for SO long now that we were going to start stocking Sewing Patterns and the time has finally arrived! We have just added five, firm favourites (as chosen by our customers) from ‘ Tilly & the buttons ‘. For those of you that have attended, or booked on to soon attend, our newest dungaree making class you will already have been introduced to the ‘ CLEO dungaree dress ‘ which is a relaxing and beautiful make!

Here at Sew Confident HQ we are most excited to get making the newest pattern by Tilly & the buttons – the ‘ BILLIE sweatshirt and dress ‘. Anything with a balloon sleeves gets a big thumbs up from us! For those of you that love working with jersey or are just beginning to try your hand at stretch fabric, we also have the ‘COCO top and dress‘ as well as the ‘INDIGO top and dress‘ – two perfect day to day patterns suitable for all capabilities.

Looking for something that is a little bit dressier and allows you to stay clear of stretch fabrics? Fear not, the LOTTA dress is for you! With the options to choose between knee-length or midi-length skirt… grown-on short sleeves or bracelet-length drop shoulder sleeves… AND the option to add deep patch pockets, this swishy & flattering dress is one to be added to your collection. (Jersey lovers don’t worry, the LOTTA can be made in woven or stretch!)

Finally, no make is finished without a fabulous label, which is why we have also just added various (and hilarious) labels by ‘Kylie and the machine’ to our shop too! You can check them out HERE. While your here, no sewing shop is complete without checking out some fabric too, right?

Happy sewing and be sure to tag us in your beautiful makes!
