Just want to share the changes I’ve made to the Mathilde pattern. It no longer really resembles the Mathilde top as Tilly intended it. I’ve turned it into a dress and a top that suits me and my sewing style, both of which are simple!
all I did with the sleeves was trace around the original and then move the original up the sleeve to the desired length and then trace along the bottom of it to keep the curve. Works really well. And with the dress pieces, again traced around the original pieces and then carefully added the extra length remembering to keep the curve at the bottom of the pieces. as there is a slight curve to the original bodice pieces. Hope that makes sense.
I love your hacks, did you reduce the body in the pattern because you’ve not got the pin tucks?
Thank you Jo, and yes I did reduce the body due to no pin tucks. Tilly’s blog shows you what to do. I can’t remember exactly how its done. X
