Project Description

Sewing Bee sewer Tracey loves Tilly and The Buttons patterns and making her own clothes.

Always looking for something a bit different, The Tilly and The Buttons Ness skirt is her latest project – worn with style!

Tracey booked a day’s Sew Personal session as part of her employers work experience scheme that encourages employees to step outside their comfort zone and try something different and not connected to their job.

Tracey's Tilly and The Buttons Bettine dress - Jane White Couture TuitionTracey started with a tailored skirt from a self-drafted pattern. This gave lots of key basic dressmaking skills from cutting out, graininess, how to use a sewing machine, hems, inserting a zip, waistband and hemming.

Tracey picked up the skills quickly and was just as quickly hooked on sewing!

Now an accomplished sewer, Tracey has gone on to using an overlocker and making garments in jersey to the Tilly and the Buttons Rosa shirt waister dress in green needlecord.
