“What’s that girl? Timmy’s fallen down the well?”

No need to send out the dogs to find me. Lassie can carry on fighting crime and saving children through the power of barking.*
I’ve just been having some time off and some technical issues!

Make Me - mathilde blouse (1)

I’ve been busy beavering away on a dress and two tops but illness, family bereavement and a new job haven’t helped with the energy to do photoshoots. And my wordpress was refusing to publish my latest jacket post so I’ve given up on getting it live for now.



Today we have a brief interlude from my jacket progress to present my Mathilde blouse wearable muslin.

*Fun fact. Timmy never fell down a well on the show as far as I know. Lassie fell down a well. Timmy got stuck in a mine shaft and fell in a river though.

  1. Glad to see you back, hope things are a bit better for you. Your Mathilde blouse looks lovely. I would call it a “wearable full stop” as it’s too good to be a muslin!

    1. Cheers Sabs! It’s a little snug across the chest but I’m still planning on wearing it until it pops 🙂 I’ll work out the fitting kinks on teh next one.
