Love at First Stitch offers a refreshing approach to dressmaking for modern makers. With jargon-busting tutorials and a down-to-earth attitude, the book takes you from the absolute basics of threading your sewing machine through to creating a wardrobe full of gorgeous clothes that you'll be proud to say you made yourself.

Since the best way to learn is to get stuck in, Love at First Stitch starts you sewing straight away. Each chapter focuses on a project from one of the adorable garment patterns included with the book. You don't need to plough through a bewildering manual to work out how to make them - new techniques are introduced as and when you need them, so you can build your skills and confidence one project at a time.

* Printed patterns are included in the back of the book, layered on double-sided sheets for tracing off. Or if you don't like tracing, you can download A4/Letter or A0 files to print at home or at a copyshopThe patterns included are:

  • Margot pyjama bottoms
  • Delphine skirt
  • Megan dress
  • Mimi blouse
  • Lilou dress

- Plus, instructions for drafting your own simple patterns for the Brigette scarf and Clemence skirt.

Chic clothes are a snip with Tilly

I returned to sewing during the lockdown and recently bought Love at First Stitch. I have learned so much from this book. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and Tilly's chatty writing style is enjoyable. I made the Margot pyjama bottoms in one morning and am thrilled with them.

As well as offering the sewing patterns, Tilly has suggestions for ways to vary the look or cut of the clothes and shows how these can be done. If you are interested in making some clothes for yourself that you would be proud to wear this book is a great plan to start.

The cover price isn't cheap but when you consider that you get 7 good patterns and a whole raft of useful skills it seems good value.

Thank you so much Judy for you kind words and for sharing your experience with Tilly's first book, this is exactly why she wrote it. So pleased you've enjoyed using it. Team Buttons x
