Introduction to patchwork and quiltingIn the introduction to patchwork and quilting class, you will learn the essential basic skills of quilting and make a pretty patchwork sampler. This sewing class is suitable for those who have used a sewing machine before and can confidently thread the machine and bobbin. If you need a beginners class or a refresher then have a look at beginners classes available or get in touch for a 1 to 1 session. You will learn:
LeanLearn to sew a hoodie - the Sew Over It Drew hoodieThe Drew hoodie from Sew Over It unisex pattern has a slightly oversized fit that suits all genders and is perfect as activewear or loungewear (taken from the Sew Over It website). The hoodie features a front kangaroo style pocket, a classic waistband and cuffs. The hood is lined and is tightened with a drawstring. You can choose to use some eyelets or just make buttonholes to feed the drawstring through. This is a Level 4 workshop and is suitable for those who are confident with the sewing machine and have sewn a garment with woven fabric. It is ideal to cut out the fabric pattern pieces in advance of the class to allow more time to sew on the day. You will learn how to:

Learn to sew a sweatshirt – Tilly and the Buttons Billie sweater/sweater dress
“Cool, casual and modern, Billie is an ultra-comfy sweatshirt or sweater dress.” “It has a relaxed shape, crew neckline and classic trim details. Keep it effortless with cuffed, straight sleeves, or add some drama with on-trend balloon sleeves and deep cuffs. Choose between top length which sits on the high hip, or mini dress which finishes 10cm (4in) above the knee with gorgeous cutaway pockets.” (taken from the Tilly and the Buttons website)
This workshop is suitable for those who have used a sewing machine before, can confidently thread the machine and bobbin and have sewn several projects before. If you need a beginners class or a refresher then have a look at beginners classes available. Please get in touch if you are not sure whether this is a suitable level for you.
You will learn how to:
If this is your first garment or first time using stretchy fabrics, I would suggest you choose to sew the sweatshirt version. If you are more confident then you could choose the dress or balloon sleeved version.
What is included:
The Billie sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 6-34.
You will need to measure yourself in order to know how much fabric to get. You cannot compare to high street sizes. Please get in touch if you are uncertain.
You will need to measure your bust, waist and hips. Please refer to my blog post on measuring yourself accurately.
You will need to get:
I would recommend using ribbing for cuffs etc, if main fabric has less than 20% stretch. For a regular sleeve you will need 0.6m of ribbing and for the balloon sleeve you will need 0.7m of ribbing.
If your fabric is particularly stretchy you can stabilise the shoulder seams using 30cm (12″) of 6-9mm (1/4″) wide satin ribbon.
Sweatshirt fleece, French terry, Ponte Roma, double knit, interlock or sweater knit with at least 10% stretch.
Please give me a call if you are in any doubt about fabric choices or suggestions of where to buy from.
It is recommended to pre wash your fabric before the workshop as it is likely to shrink a little in the first wash. Do not hang your fabric to dry as it will stretch out of shape – dry flat.
“This has been such a popular Tilly and the Buttons’ pattern and you can see why. I absolutely love this pattern (as you can see from my 3 versions!!). So comfy to wear and with the 3 options in the one pattern, it offers great value for money. Perfect working from home attire! It is a great pattern for those new to sewing with stretch or for those a bit more confident that would like to improve their skills further.“
