Here she is! My first attempt at the Mathilde Blouse and contribution to the June Indie Pattern Month Sew-along. I manged to tackle those tucks and darts relatively well that’s to awesome instructions on Tilly’s blog. It was a lot of fun to make this and I’ll definitely be making another one.
Fabric : not too sure but its a cotton with a lot of drape.
Notions: 7 buttons (I used 8 as mine were small)
Instructions: Tilly has a great tutorial on her blog with loads of pics. Perfect for a beginner
Level: Beginner/Adventurous Beginner
Time to complete: 5 hours. (took me a while to get the tucks right!)
Wear it? : Yes
Sew again: Yes in a Chambray fabric! Next time though I will have to make it longer as I am quite tall. I felt it is a bit short (for me anyway!). I will also try the version with the gathers instead of tucks.
June is Indie Pattern Month. This is a great sew-along supporting the independent patterns out there. Drop over to the Curious Kiwi’s or Modern Vintage Cupcakes blog for more information.
I’ve decided to tackle the Mathilde Blouseby one of my favourite sewing bloggers (and one of my inspirations) Tilly and the Buttons.
It’s a bit of a scary one, with tucks and darts (my arch nemesis) but I’m going to take it slow. That’s going to be hard for me. I get so excited when I’m sewing and all I want to do is see the finished product, so I tend to rush things a bit and make silly mistakes. Patience is a virtue.
