About this deal

Each chapter contains a project, beginning simple with a scarf and ending with an impressive lined dress. You will then be prompted to enter a password which can be found on the back of your printed copy of the book. The cookies used to prevent fraud and maintain the security or our services are active for a maximum period of 24 months. Within three years of first threading a needle, Tilly's blog is the most popular sewing blog in the UK and she appeared as a contestant in the first season of The Great British Sewing Bee , the only contestant to design and draft her own garment designs. On a whim and feeling the urge to fill a creative void, Tilly Walnes signed up for a three-day dressmaking course.

As you go through the patterns you will find that each one also has ideas on how you can 'make it your own', customising or experimenting with adaptations and different variations.

If you delete or clear your cookies, or if you change which web browser you are using, you will need to set your cookie preferences again. If you have no experience at all with your machine you might need a bit more information than anyone could get into a book - machines vary enormously so check out the machine manual or look it up in YouTube.

Since the best way to learn is to get stuck in, Love at First Stitch starts you sewing straight away.There are 7 projects in the book that cover all the essential skills you need to begin sewing your own clothes - 5 of which are full size patterns in the back.

Having the blog to pair up with the book is very helpful for anyone just starting out because there are so many photographs on there that match exactly to what you are learning. With jargon-busting tutorials and a down-to-earth attitude, the book takes you from the absolute basics of threading your sewing machine through to creating a wardrobe full of gorgeous clothes that you'll be proud to say you made yourself. Lifespan: Most cookies are session cookies (which are only active until you close your browser) or are cookies which are only active for one day. Since the best way to learn is to get stuck in, Love at First Stitch starts you sewing straight away.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Simple, elegant, and a little groovy, Love at First Stitch is all you need to start making the dresses of your dreams--with 7 complete full-size patterns. Tilly's hints and tips for making sewing part of your lifestyle, adding your own special touch to any sewing project, and even how to polish your signature style. Tilly appeared on the first series of BBC2’s The Great British Sewing Bee in 2013, and has been named 'Sewing Designer of the Year' at the British Craft Awards' and 'Favourite Sewing Personality' in the British Sewing Awards. This is the first of one of my more in depth book reviews where you'll hopefully see what projects are like to make as well as what is in the book and who it might be suitable for.
