Love at First Stitch gives you all the know-how you need to start making the dresses of your dreams.
The designer behind the popular Tilly and the Buttons patterns, Tilly Walnes demystifies dressmaking for the generations that have never been taught to sew. This book presents the core sewing basics in an informal style, with Tilly's friendly and encouraging voice cheering the reader on throughout.
Each chapter presents practical tips and inspiration to guide you through creating a made-to-measure garment from one of the seven versatile and adaptable patterns included with the book, which can then be personalised to suit your individual style. Peppered throughout the book are Tilly's top sewing tips, including everything from what to look out for when buying or borrowing your first sewing machine, through how to behave in a fabric shop to appear like an expert, to techniques for pressing perfection.
