Includes six full-scale printed sewing patterns in sizes UK 6-24 with multiple variations*

Make It Simple is full of quick and easy sewing projects to help you get your creative fix, no matter how busy you are.

In this book, award-winning sewing author, pattern designer and working mum, Tilly Walnes of Tilly and the Buttons, shares her sewing shortcuts and time-saving tactics for squeezing sewing into even the smallest window of time.

The 24 simple, modern dressmaking projects can be whipped up in a few hours - whether that's a few short sittings after work, or a stolen afternoon away from the kids. The full-scale dressmaking patterns include ten sizes (UK 6-24/US 2-20) and range from a classic t-shirt and snuggly cardigan to a cute pinafore and stylish playsuit.

If you're a beginner, you'll find easy-peasy projects and fuss-free techniques to kickstart your sewing journey. If you're an experienced stitcher, you'll enjoy the satisfyingly quick wardrobe-building patterns and tips for speeding up your sewing.

Can't wait to see what you make!
