GET INSPIRED #SewingMarnie
I loved the style but it came up very ‘blouses’ on me
Hi Beverley. Marnie is designed to be blousey, the finished garment will have lots of ease which makes it easy to fit but if you need any fitting help check out the Extra Pattern Support for Marnie on our blog https://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/2022/09/fitting-marnie.html
This pattern inspired me to dig out my sewing machine after 7 years gathering dust. The instructions were very easy to follow and gave enough detail to enable me to complete the garment relatively easily and without any help from elsewhere. I also love the fact that I can use the pdf pattern numerous times to create different iterations of the blouse with different fabrics. This particular one took me about 1 day to make and I used a polycotton, I haven't tried the tucks but its definitely on the list to try for the next Marnie blouse and no doubt that sooner or later I'll have a wardrobe full of them!
Ellice thank you so much for sharing your Marnie make and your kind words. So pleased you're a fan of the pattern. Team Buttons x
Loved making this Marnie blouse! It was my first T&B’s pattern and after deliberating which elements to combine I found the instructions and YouTube tutorial really easy to follow.
The Instagram post about decorative stitches nudged me to try my scallop stitch although I wasn’t brave or patient enough to snip around each curve. It looks pretty though.
I chose a super soft cotton lawn to make a floaty summer version omitting the long sleeves (I just narrow hemmed the upper sleeve pieces).
My favourite part is the undulating tucks which are really satisfying to sew. Version 2 is already pinned and waiting to be cut out!
Highly recommend for a confident beginner. Happy Sewing!

Fantastic pattern. Such a pretty dress and really clear instructions. I have made 2 dresses so far, not bad to say I've had the pattern about a week.
Thank you Sarah, we really appreciated your lovely words. Team Buttons x
