Mathilde pattern by Tilly and the Buttons – sew an elegant button-back blouse

MATHILDE BLOUSE - DIGITAL

Regular price £11.50

Make a beautiful button-back blouse!

DIGITAL ONLY PATTERN

Take your sewing skills to the next level by making Mathilde. The 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 colour buttons to create a surprise when you turn around.

"Thanks for making the Mathilde pattern so easy to understand. Your step-by-step guides rule, I've learned so much!" - Kathryn
