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.

This is my second fabric purchase from MaaiDesign. As per the first order the fabric is excellent - a decent weight and with the added bonus of matching ribbing if required. I'm looking forward to making a start on my first project tomorrow.
My order for waistband elastic, old gold bias binding and a Megan Neilsen pattern arrived v quickly and nicely packaged. The elastic and binding are both gorgeous, exactly as described and of excellent quality. The website is just lovely and full of hard-to-get stuff like coloured ribbing. Maaike gave my order the personal touch. Now one of my fave sewing shops.
I recently purchased a few patterns from Maaike great customer service !!!!
Service matched the commitment on web site.
Loved the personal thankyou message.
I recently purchased two Tilly and the Buttons patterns. The service was very efficient and l will use MaaiDesign again.
