My Mathilde Blouse

London, United K...






I decided to try the Mathilde Blouse from Tilly and the Buttons. The pattern is amazing and fitted together perfectly. It was exciting for me as it was a number of firsts, first sleeves, first tucks, first buttons! I really enjoyed putting it together.

I added some colourful buttons on the back as the I knew the colour of the blouse is a bit boring (but I wanted to wear it to work). I only had 6 red buttons and I needed 7, so rather than waiting and buying more I decided to use a blue button and make a feature of it. I actually quite like the result, I might so this on more tops! Although I love it I think I probably needed to lengthen it for me a little, next time I shall!

    This is so cute and you must be over the moon, especially with all the firsts.
