                  Lovely pattern

                  This was a delight to sew. I’d say I’m an advanced beginner sewist. It came together very well. I’ve made two and I’m planning on a third! The perfect comfy sweater for fall and winter. Loose but not unflattering.

                  Hi Christin, so great to see you've made yourself the dress and sweatshirt. it certainly is the perfect time of year for Billie. Thank you for sharing. Team Buttons x

                  Great results, really clear pattern

                  Another fabulous pattern from Tilly and the Buttons. Super easy to follow, great tips in the instructions supported by online video. I made the balloon sleeve sweater dress, lengthened as I wanted a longer skirt, and am delighted with the results, thank you :-)

                  Jo, we have heart eyes for your Billie dress. And so great to read that you used our online video resources to help with your make. Lots of free tips and techniques on our blog. Team Buttons x

                  Great shape, clear instructions

                  I bought the printed version of the Billie pattern and the instruction book was super clear. The only issue I had with this lovely quick sew was the pockets. I’m not sure if it’s because I have a larger bum but I’ve made two of these now and cannot get the pocket bag to sit right. The shape of the dress and ease of the sew is fantastic though and it’s super simple to make variations with the sleeves, length, neckline, fabric etc so it will be good value for money I can see. Still recommend as it’s probably just my (lack of) sewing skills!

                  Thank you OJ x

                  There is not much to say about these patterns but that they are brilliant as having been trying to find patterns to fit my daughter, who is in the larger range I am over the moon at the design and the quality and also the fit. It is so nice to have someone think of the larger person and at last make it that the clothes fit and look pretty too. Anyone can follow these patterns if they just take their time and take it a step at a time. All I can really say is , Thank You and you have a customer for life.

                  Thank you so much Marie for your kind words. It so lovely to hear we're producing designs you want to make for your daughter. Your comment makes us feel proud of what we are doing. Team Buttons x
