About Tilly Walnes
On a whim and feeling the urge to fill a creative void, Tilly Walnes signed up for a three-day dressmaking course. It was love at first stitch. Her new-found joy in sewing her own clothes but lack of friends who could also sew led Tilly to start her blog, Tilly and the Buttons, so that she could share her experiences and swap tips with other would-be dressmakers. 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 series of The Great British Sewing Bee, the only contestant to design and draft her own garment designs. Between teaching dressmaking classes at sewing schools in both London and Birmingham, Tilly is developing her own range of dressmaking patterns.
