Tilly and the Buttons: Stretch!

The pattern pieces for each project are on separate sheets and easy to trace off, I traced the largest size as T's favorite hoodie that must be around 7 years old is super oversize and great instead of a dressing gown.  One extra feature she asked for was teddy bear ears!

The construction was very straight forward and a super quick make, I used my overlocker for most of the construction and only top-stitched the hood front for the cord and hem.  The hem has a pointed detail to match the original hoodie and is about 6 inches longer than the patter.  So loved making this and T is delighted, only shy about being pictured wearing it.  I have plans to make the Joni dress next, when I can find the right fabric and I know Tilly is having a pop-up shop tomorrow - so will try to go along if I can.

Love the new book and am sure it will help cure me of my fear of stretch fabrics, have had a couple of disasters over the years and I'm sure it was just down to the fabric I used.  So if you'd like to start sewing with stretch, its a perfect book and great also just for all the patterns!
