What's on Dolly

So my sewing journey is continuing.
So this week at home I have been trying to finish my Mathilde Blouse. The pattern can be found at 
Tilly was on the Great British Sewing Bee and I now follow her blog. I love that we can now download patterns off the Internet and my Sunday afternoons are spent putting the patterns together like a glorious jigsaw puzzle while my lovely husband cooks our roast dinner.

I did a practice run of the blouse in very thin cheap material. I loved how it turned out but unfortunately I put large buttons on the back and the material can not handle the heaviness of them. So I found a lovely material that I am hoping can handle the weight of the gorgeous red buttons that I have found.

So here is Dolly wearing my Mathilde Blouse, I think she is looking rather good, just need to attach the buttons and it will be finished, hooray!

  1. Welcome back, I've missed you!!
    Love Dolly and this blouse you have made. I didn't realise you can download patterns of the internet, not sure how that works, I imagine you have to transfer a scale onto paper but I like that kind of thing. I must check out Till's website. Good luck with your sewing. I've decided I want some new clothes and don't like what I see in the shops much of the time so may be joining you (time permitting) in this sewing fun :)
