I love the artfulness of Katherine and Marcy's design sense. Their styles are relatively easy to sew, and comfortable to wear. I love how I can take a Tilton pattern and make it mine, either with a design change, or with paint. The sisters have helped me build a wardrobe that expresses my playful, off-the-beaten-path personality.

Two jackets, two vests, and six tops. (Good thing I have jeans and pants to cover my lower half!) Many thanks to the Tilton sisters for the inspiration they have given me. My wish is that I have passed it along to my readers.
I'm working on a couple of woven top projects now, and a knit top is waiting to be hemmed. First, I need to make some shorts - a scary proposition, but I know I have to bite the bullet and dive in. There are no Tiltons planned in the immediate future, but those sisters always reside in my creative mind, so I know they'll show up again soon!
