Tilly and the Buttons patterns

This is the newest style, the Arielle skirt.  I am working on this right now!

      I have been enjoying sewing patterns designed by Tilly Walnes from Tilly and the Buttons.  I thought I would share some of my recent makes with you. The most recent is the Miette skirt.  It is a 1970's style A-line wrap skirt that is super versatile.

tilly offers downloadable patterns that you print out at home!

This is my favorite version in red stretch Sateen from JoAnn fabric's.  I drew an anchor and appliqued it on the side of the skirt to give it a nautical look.

This vintage skirt from Etsy is my first inspiration for the Anchor applique.

This Fun skirt from Boden is where I got the idea for the tilted anchor.  I printed out the photo and enlarged it on the printer to get a guide for my anchor applique.

This one I added a pinafore top between the seams of the waistband making a wrap dress.

Pardon the bare feet.  I was just trying to get a photo of the dress on a real person...   It is super comfy and grows with you because of the wrap feature.  I have crossing straps in the back that are also sewn into the top seam of the waistband so there are no zips or buttons.  You could even make a button on bib if you wanted and wear the skirt both ways!

I am so thankful to Tilly for making such wonderful, easy to follow patterns!  I will post a pic of my Arielle skirt as soon as I finish it.  It has lots of buttons!!
