Eden coat pattern review

I was lucky enough to be a tester for the Tilly and the Buttons Eden coat so I got to see it in all its glory late last year. I chose to make the wool duffle version as I had an old mustard RTW one that was on its last legs so needed replacing. I […]

SewMyStyle April – Marigold Jumpsuit Hack

With Spring on the horizon, it seems fitting that the Sew My Style pattern for April is the Tilly and the Buttons Marigold jumpsuit. Funnily enough, the pattern has never appealed to me as much as Tilly’s other patterns because I am a short girl anyway, and I think it has a tendency to make […]
