About

In this fun and practical workshop, Sewing Bee 2019 winner Juliet Uzor will take you step-by-step through making a comfy and casual sweatshirt, using a brand new pattern from Tilly and the Buttons.

We will be making version 1 of the Billie pattern, a classic sweatshirt with crew neckline, cuffed straight sleeves and hem band (UK sizes 6-24). It’s the perfect snuggly top for the winter! You will learn how to construct the sweatshirt from start to finish on a regular sewing machine (no overlocker required).
