Tilly and the Buttons Mathilde Blouse

Material: Wool Challis, Polyester and Cotton Drill
Pattern: Tilly and the Buttons Mathilde Blouse

A few years ago I made a few versions of the Tilly and the Buttons Mathilde Blouse. Mostly after seeing some really gorgeous versions of this top including Maude’s. Tops are always a great addition to any wardrobe and this is one of those patterns I will always come back to for a wardrobe filler.



This is a really beautiful pattern and ended up being a perfect fit, even suitable for wider shoulder widths. There was no pulling at the top of your shoulders, which some tops tend do when they’re too tight a fit. I loved it so much, I did what I typically do when I love a pattern…. I made it 3 times 🙂


Tilly has also done a wonderful job explaining this pattern step-by-step. Her instructions are so easy and you end up making a really beautiful, well finished top in a matter of a hours.
