Fifi | Tilly and The Buttons
The camisole is cut on the bias to create a flowing shape, with soft pleated cups, gently shaped princess seam back and bias binding straps. The shorts have a narrow stitched-in elastic waistband and cheeky curved hems.
A treat for stitchers looking to advance their skills, the instructions will walk you through techniques for sewing bias cut fabric, creating binding and finishing the insides with impressive French seams.
Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Fifi includes jargon-busting instructions, handy sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – helping you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package containing full-scale pattern sheets and a colour instruction booklet.

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Lightweight drapey fabrics that feel nice against the skin, such as cotton lawn, voile, viscose (rayon) or silk satin. Best to avoid directional prints as the camisole is cut on the bias and the shorts on the straight grain.

The bamboo jersey I purchased is beautiful quality. Malik’s is also very warm in her communications
My cuff ribbing arrived fast and will packaged. It is lovely and exactly what I expected. I am looking forward to sewing with it.
I am also loving my FibreMood magazines. I have not come across this magazine before and have already identified so many things I want to make.
Bought ribbing and a skirt pattern .Both arrived in 2 days . Top quality ribbing . Great service
I ordered a pattern, and some labels for my stitching and crafting projects, plus being unfamiliar with the products on offer, several short lengths of a variety of fabrics for small items. In one word.
So happy I made my order.
The pattern is clearly written and easy to use. I love culottes and thrilled to find this pattern.
The gorgeous colours and luxurious feel of the jersey fabrics I chose are beyond words. Won't be long before my next order.
Excellent communication and rapid delivery of my order. Thank you so much.
Beautiful, rich colours, and very prompt delivery!
