Send us a message


That booty booty! Ultra cool with a seventies twist, the Tilly and the Buttons Jessa trousers or shorts pattern will soon become your fave. With wide, gently flared legs on the full-length trousers or turn-up hems on the shorts, they close with a concealed front zip fly.

The high waist, curved waistband and back darts will flatter your bum, while the triangle tab fastening, deep patch pockets and faux pocket flap will have you swooning while you sew.

Jessa includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

All Tilly and the Buttons patterns are printed in the UK on sturdy FSC certified paper using vegetable inks.
