Tilly Walnes

Blogger - Tilly and the Buttons

Tilly Walnes is a DIY dressmaker and author of the popular sewing blog Tilly and the Buttons.

Overjoyed at rediscovering a childhood passion for making things, she recently left behind a film industry career to focus on her mission to make dressmaking simple and fun for the generations who were never taught. On Tilly and the Buttons you’ll find tips, tutorials and inspiration for making your own clothes.

As well as writing her blog, Tilly designs modern, user-friendly guides to making your own clothes, teaches sewing workshops, appeared on the first series of BBC2’s The Great British Sewing Bee, writes a column for Crafty magazine, and has just written her first book, Love at First Stitch (published by Quadrille, May 2014).
