Me-Made-May'15: Tilly and the Buttons Giveaway

**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS EVERYONE WHO ENTERED. THE WINNER HAS BEEN CONTACTED**




Well my friends, here's the last Me-Made-May'15 celebration giveaway. Let's go out with a bang with lovely one from Tilly and the Buttons. Tilly is kindly offering one paper pattern to be chosen from her lovely range, PLUS an awesome DIY Dressmaker tote bag!


So what to choose?! Maybe you've had your eye on one of Tilly's patterns (like the Mathilde blouse pattern, pictured above) for agesssss. Well now could be your chance to finally snag a copy. Or perhaps the new Arielle skirt pattern (pictured below)
has caught your eye?


The DIY Dressmaker bag (pictured below) is a lovely quality, strong, sturdy and spacious bag, made from 100% cotton canvas, with long webbing handles that won't cut into your shoulders. The clever gusset and landscape style of the bag make it super roomy, easy to carry, and perfect for fabric shopping or taking to a class. The bag is made from a sustainable crop in a Fair Trade registered factory in India and screen printed in the UK using water-based ink. I am lucky enough to own one of these and I can vouch for the fact that it really is excellent quality, more than a cut above your average tote!


This giveaway is open to participants of Me-Made-May only. Go and have a look at her selection of sewing patterns, and let us know which you'd choose and what you'd make it up in (fabric/trims/any embellishment/etc.)!

To enter, simply leave your comment on this post which includes your email address, unless I can access your email address within two clicks of my mouse. No email address, no way to contact you about your prize. If you aren't positive that it can be accessed within two clicks, then leave it in the comment itself. Your email address will not be used for any purpose other than contacting you if you are the winner. Every time I host a giveaway some people comment without any way to contact them, and it sucks to be them coz often those peops get picked by the random number generator and I have to re-draw. Don't let that be you! Leave your comment by midnight GMT Friday 29th May 2015. I will pick a winner by random number generator the following day.

I really want to make up an Arielle and would love a printed pattern. I have only bought PDF's from her up until now, so seeing it in print would be awesome. I would make a lovely summery Arielle in a chambray or even a floral/Hawaiian print. (Maybe both!)

Melwyk said...

I've been eyeing the Miette for a long time now...though the Arielle is giving me second thoughts...

But I'd probably make the Miette in a beautiful vintage cotton I've been stashing -- cream coloured, covered with huge mustard-coloured roses. It would look perfect with the Miette's vintage flair.

Meg said...

Not very original, but maybe a chambray Miette

helsbels said...

I'd love to make up a coral twill Arielle - just gorgeous pattern

Clarinda said...

I have seen some lovely Mathildes during #mmmay15 so that's what I'd go for as a printed pattern. It's such a feminine blouse I'd use a Liberty Lawn in a floral print in sea colours. joanne@clarkson.com

I'd like to make the Arielle too. I'd go for a lovely denim / chambray version for summer and I have a nice red twill in my stash for a autumn version too.

The coco dress would be perfect for me to sew over summer ready for my first job as a teacher in September! I would make it in a range of solid colours (I would like a nice emerald green to start) and maybe add some professor type elbow patches! Mel_holmes3289(at)hotmail(dot)co(dot)uk

Nathalie Sews said...

I would love to have the Mathilde blouse, maybe in a nice small black and white print! nathaliesewsthings@gmail.com

jesssewfabulous said...

I would love to have the Arielle pattern! I would make it up in a lovely navy denim and trim it, military/nautical style with either gold or red and white braid and gold buttons!

I have Tilly's Love at First Stitch and a couple of pdf patterns, so I would love to own my first ever T&TB printed pattern (:

The Mandrake's Voice said...

I have realised during #MMMay15 that I have a severe lack of hand made tops (and by that I mean I only have one! :P) so I would choose the Matilde blouse. I would make it in a bright coloured cotton lawn. I already have Tilly's Coco pattern, and I couldn't love it more if I tried!!

Michelle said...

Think it would have to be the Coco, but hard to choose.

mish73@tesco.net

summersunbear said...

So hard to choose one - I've had my eye on Arielle since it came out, but MMM has shown that I really need some tops and dresses, so I'd get the Coco pattern.

Stine Vasard said...

Oh I would die for the Francoise sewed up In vintage blue and White Terry whit wire pipping and Beautiful vintage buttons... Fingers crossed... I so want This

notsewsimple said...

I would love to win the Arielle pattern - it seems that I need more skirts for spring!

Dixie O'Dare said...

I would love to make the Arielle in a red heavy stretch cotton with big white buttons and piping!

Jonesy said...

I'm so taken with Arielle! I know I'm thinking ahead, but I'd make a knee-length winter one in velvet. I'd choose a sumptuous jewel colour - peacock blue or raspberry. I like the idea of covered buttons but if the velvet was too bulky for that, I'd maybe cover them in a sort of matte silk in the same shade as the skirt. Otherwise I might go for gold buttons. Would add black tights, heels and a pussy bow blouse! Would love to win ­čśŹ my email address is louisesinclairjones@gmail.com

Almost a Hippy said...

What a great giveaway. I love Tilly's patterns, I currently have a mathilde blouse in the works. I'm really tempted by the francoise dress and I have the perfect vintage floral in my stash to make it up in!

Rebecca Woodward said...

I love Mathilde but I think Arielle would win. I'd make a mini denim version for days off and the longer version in black, suitable for the office. There would have to be some subtly fun buttons and a superb lining though! Becca_makin(at)hotmail(dot)com

ShelleyLou said...

I'd love the Miette skirt pattern, I have some African wax fabric which I think would make a fab Miette. Thank you.

Jo H. said...

The Me Made May giveaways are such fun! I'd go for the Arielle - I've never been much of a straight skirt wearer because I haven't found one yet that was comfy at the waist, but the shaping on this looks extremely promising! And the buttons are very cute too :-) Got to say I have no idea yet what fabric I'd use... I'd probably start with a black one for work and then get a bit (lot) more interesting with some large-scale prints after that!

Louise said...

I think I'd make Francoise in an emerald green polka dot with white collar. Thank you!

Jenna Tamminga said...

Oh - totally need the Arielle. Like...need. I have most of Tilly's other pattern, being a huge Tilly fan girl! And I believe I would give this one a go in a lovely chambray. Loooovveeerrrrlllyyyy

Isabel said...

I'd love the arielle pattern. I'd make it in denim. I also really like the yellow verison and want a yellow skirt so that pattern would be perfect!
Isabeljtaylor@hotmail.com

thumblenina said...

Ooh! I would LOVE the Coco pattern as it would be my first attempt at sewing knits... Would whip up a classic Breton-Brigitte-Bardot-esque version ahead of my holiday to France next month! nina.chang@cantab.net

Zo├ź said...

Ooh I love Tilly's patterns, I'd love to get a copy of her Francoise dress. It's really different to my usual style but it looks so cute. Looks perfect for a LBD with some contrast buttons

Beth Holmes said...

ooh what a lovely giveaway! i think i would have to go for the arielle skirt in chambray :) beththegulfmini@googlemail.com - thank you!

Sara said...

Oh what a great giveaway, thank you Tilly! I've been tempted by Francoise for a long time, but now the Arielle skirt has won my heart! It's such a versatile pattern I have at least three versions already in mind :)

Macska said...

I'd pick the Francoise and make it up in a lovely royal blue ponte I have in my stash, with possibly light grey contrast top stitching just for fun. :-)

Flavia Gaspar said...

I love the Coco pattern! Would love to make is as a top, stripey fabric, with some flower print applique, like the tutorial posted by Tilly last year. Love the idea!

prairiegirl said...

I would choose Mathilde - likely in a cotton lawn or voile.

Kim @ craftyNHmom said...

I would definitely go for the Arielle Skirt!! I love those buttons.

I would use the gorgeous silk I bought in Singapore several years ago to make the Mathilde blouse. It would be perfect and show the border print on bottom and sleeves.

Oww, nice! Skirts are always best, so I'd love to make the longer version of Arielle. In denim maybe?

Lindsay said...

I'd love to make the Arielle skirt! And I have a piece of white raw silk that I'd like to use after dying it a fun color!

Kacy Burchfield said...

I would love the Miette pattern. I'd make it in so many different fabrics. It's really the perfect staple wardrobe skirt. So versitile!

Hannah Frost said...

I really would love the francoise pattern! I'd make it in a lovely bit polka dotty cotton - nice and light for the summer! I think I'd also make another one and experiment with a lace yoke and some beading on the shoulders? hannahlouisefrost (at) aol (dot) co (dot) uk

lp said...

I like the Coco pattern. It's hard to want to deviate from those great stripes, but I think I would also try some fleece or wool for the colder weather. lisa dot Poblenz at gmail dot com

NICHOLE GOODISON said...

I like a few of the Tilly patterns, but for me I think it's got to be the matilda blouse In any thing drapey.

I think I'd go for Miette in a lovely big vintage rose print x

I would love to try that Fran├žoise dress. harper.diane@sympatico.ca

Jennie said...

I wouldn't mind a Miette :)

jen said...

I've had the Arielle pattern in my cart for the past week ... I could use that skirt ! :) jeniferorama AT gmail.com

I'm a sucker for a knit dress so I would make the Coco - I've wanted it for ages! I have the perfect purple ponte knit that I would make it in. Thanks for the giveaway! youngseamstress(at)gmail(dot)com

dressingtherole said...

I'd love to make a Miette, probably in some sort of bright cotton twill (probably red!). Which I know is a total copy-cat move, but it looks good *every time*! Email is titaniaem [at] gmail [dot] com

A home sewn, recycled,vintage life said...

Oooo it would definitely have to be the miette, I have a lovely polka dot and red bold floral itching to be made into miette. hazeydi@yahoo.com

Anonymous said...

Really can't decide but I think I'm also taken with Arielle- got my eye on some slightly bonkers dotty cotton chambray and I think I'd go for some multicoloured buttons too!

Mary S said...

I've got some wine coloured fabric all ready for a coco (just need to get the pattern!), but I also love the new arielle skirt

RosieCallaghan said...

I've been wanting to make a coco for ages now. I want to learn to see with knit fabric and I feel this would be the perfect introduction :)

Rosieacallaghan@gmail.com

Christine said...

I've been pining over Francoise, so I would make that - the sleeveless version - in a white fabric with green dots that I have in my stash. And then I would make it again in black. And then I would make it again...

Hi Zoe. I'd be quite keen for a copy of the Miette Skirt pattern. I'd make it in a crazy pineapple linen that I have. melanie2880@hotmail.com

Jeane Horner said...

I would really love to make a Mathilde top in either a Liberty tana lawn or luxurious crêpe de chine - or maybe both!

sewingandsnacking said...

I would be all over the Francoise dress. My heavy hinting escaped my husband's attention over Christmas! I'd make it in something delightful from The Creative Sanctuary (my local). dawncompton@virginmedia.com

Vicky said...

I have been eyeing up several of these patterns for a while, but top of my list is the Francoise. I think the first one I'd make would be in a tartarn pattern with plain collar. victoria.wilcher@gmail.com

I'm always tempted to get the Miette skirt, so I would definitely choose that one :) I'd love to make it in a denim with fun top stitching - maybe a contrasting color. Thanks so much!

Cathy said...

Even though this sunny May weather means I haven't been thinking about cozy knit dresses and tops, I would have to choose Coco. I would wear these most of the rest of the year. Thanks for the giveaway both of you, and for doing MMM again, Zoe.

I think I'd go for the Coco (with stripes!). I've just bought an overlocker so I'm quite inexperienced with knits. Thanks for the giveaway. MMM is great! It's my second year of MMM and I have many more me-made clothes this year. I've been wearing something me-made every day.
