Mathilde Blouse, three ways!

Friends, despite multiple sewing projects on the go, I have nothing finished to show you and probably won't for a while I'm afraid. But, I have been itching to revisit the beautiful, new pattern that has taken blogsville by storm - the Mathilde Blouse, the first ever commercial pattern from Tilly and the ButtonsIf you've visited Tilly's Maker Gallery, you'll already know what a versatile pattern it is and that it lends itself well to all kinds of exciting variations.

But, I also wanted to show you how versatile, and indeed wearable, the very same version of a Mathilde Blouse can be. Here are just three ways that I've worn my Mathilde to date - there are lots more combinations I'll be experimenting with...like seeing how the yummy sleeves look under a pinafore-style dress!

Casual - imagine how cool this will actually look without tights and paired with some 
pretty sandals in warmer weather.


Smart casual - this is still my favourite look to date!


Smart - I wasn't sure how this boxy shape would lend itself to being tucked in, 
but I was pleasantly surprised!


Have you experimented with styling your Mathilde Blouse? What's your favourite way to wear it?

If you're still on the fence about Tilly's pattern, you can read my thoughts on the construction process here. And for an even more comprehensive review, because she's just way more eloquent, pop over to Karen's post!

  6. Gorgeous! You're right it'll look dead cute in the Summer with shorts. I like wearing my red one ticked into a pencil skirt too - it looks really chic. Thank you so much for sharing these looks, Marie ;) xx
