Take your sewing skills to the next level by making the Mathilde Blouse by Tilly and the Buttons. This elegant blouse features tucks down the front bodice, flowing sleeves and an adorable button-back opening. Suitable for advanced beginners, you'll learn to create all these features plus French seams so you can make the inside as beautiful as the outside. The user-friendly instructions guide you through with a jargon buster, clearly labelled pattern pieces, and photos of each step. 

Tuck Mathilde into a pencil skirt or wear loose over skinny jeans. Try inserting piping into the yoke seam, or sew on contrast color buttons to create a surprise when you turn around.

PRINTED PATTERN - You'll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full scale pattern sheets and a color photo booklet to guide you through the steps.

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Lightweight cotton, silk or polyester fabrics with drape, such as lawn, voile, viscose (rayon), crêpe de chine, habotai, charmeuse. Avoid slippery fabric if you’re a beginner. Plain fabric will show the tucks better than patterned fabric.
