Mathilde Giveaway Times Three!

Make Me - mathilde blouse

Today is the third anniversary of my blog and I’m here to offer a celebratory giveaway with a difference!

You know that I’m a big fan of Tilly and the Button’s Mathilde blouse. And you appreciate that I like to shake the bag up? Which means a giveaway to the power of three.

After I sat on Tilly, she very kindly agreed to offer not one! not two! but three! free copies of her Mathilde blouse for lucky winners. But there’s a catch. I want you to spread the love and inspire each other. I know you can rise to that challenge. So here are the rules…

Leave a comment below and if you are the lucky winner drawn at random you will receive:

  • A free downloadable pattern for the Mathilde blouse, worth Β£7.
  • Two sets (yes, 12 in total) of red heart buttons from Cath Kidston to use on the button back – or not! – as whim sways you. (Wouldn’t these look fabulous against a solid teal?)

There’s one more condition. If you win, I’d like you to make the Mathilde blouse and blog about it. If you don’t have a blog, send me a photo of the finished project. You then automatically win the right to host your own giveaway – either on your own blog or here if you don’t have a blog. You’ll supply the buttons, Tilly will supply the pattern. You then pick your own winner and a second copy of the pattern will go out, along with the buttons you’ve chosen to inspire another Sewist. In turn, they’ll have their own chance to host a third giveaway.

So simple. So inspiring. So much fun! Three free patterns to celebrate my third blogiversary.

Leave a comment below if you want to enter. It goes without saying, this is open internationally. The closing date is Wednesday 27 February at midnight GMT. Hey, maybe Ella can help us pick the winner! (Have you seen how Gjeometry picked her latest Pattern Pyramid winner? Awesome!)

With thanks to Tilly and the Buttons for so generously contributing three gratis copies of the hottest pattern around.

  76. Camilla says:

    This pattern is amazing and has such pretty details. I would love to make this.

  77. Sounds like a great idea and would force me to sew and to blog about it. Because for some reason the combination of those two things hasn’t been happening much lately.

    I’m not sure about Ella doing the choosing–are you sure she’ll be impartial? She may be swayed by doggie treats…

    I can be reached at chemgrrl at hotmail dot com

  112. Jess says:

    Happy Blogiversary. Please count me in!

  113. Emma says:

    Ooh, that would be great! It looks like such a great work blouse.

  114. soisewedthis says:

    Please count me in! Teal with bright red buttons is a really cute idea =)

  115. Linda Grant says:

    Love your blog so thank you for writing it and happy anniversary. Its a happy time when I find a moment in the working day to have a wee blog check and you have updated withe one of your fine makes! Also love Mathide and have some super nice cream cotton voile that would be excellent for it and could use the pressure to get it made. Thanks for including me πŸ™‚

  116. silvia says:

    Well how could I resist adding to my list of things to make – it would be fate if I won so a guilt free blouse!

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway and tell Ella to pick me – woof!

  117. delamija says:

    Such a cool idea!! I would love to make this blouse! And i just started my own blog so I’ll also be able to blog about it πŸ™‚ thank you and Happy Anniversary!

  118. Lucinda says:

    What a great idea for a giveaway – it’s kinda like “paying it forward” in a way. I have my fabric picked out already for the blouse, so please please, pick me!

  119. Su says:

    Thought I’d pluck up the courage to leave a comment as I’d love to try making the Mathilde blouse. I haven’t yet made any clothes, but I love that Tilly has put a sew along on her blog so perhaps this would be a good item to start with. If I were to win a copy of the pattern it may take me a while to start sewing as I am currently a week overdue with my third child! The anticipated sleepless nights may dampen my crafty nature a little for the next few weeks! Would be good to have an exciting project ready to lure me back to my machine though!

  120. Rachel says:

    Congratulations your your 3 years! I hope you have many more blog years ahead.

    What a wonderful idea for a giveaway – please count me in!

  121. Adrienne says:

    Best giveaway idea ever. Congratulations on your third blogiversary!

  122. Laura R. says:

    That’s a lot of pressure to perform if one wins, but count me in. Please put my name in the hat too!
    Congrats on 3 years!

  123. Lisa says:

    I agree! Awesome Idea & a LOT of pressure to perform when you win!! YIPES!! but mark me down for the challenge!!

  124. Claire says:

    I would love to do this. I have been admiring the pattern since it came out. I’ve also been thinking about blogging – perhaps this is the inspiration I need!

  125. Oh, count me in please! I’m planning a trip to Morocco in May and I think this would make a perfect lightweight blouse with plenty of coverage!

  126. What a great idea for a giveaway! Count me in! Although, I’d love to make the blouse, regardless if I win or not:) Kudos to Tilly for a super cute pattern.

    Congratulations on 3 years!

  127. dressesandme says:

    Count me in! The patterns gorgeous and so simple for such an elegant top!

  132. Jacqueline says:

    I think I have just the fabric!

  133. Karen says:

    Well, I usually sew from vintage patterns, but I would make an exception for this. I really like this blouse – and I’m a button fanatic – so winning this giveaway would be lovely indeed! Congratulations on your three years of delightful blogging!

  134. I just discovered the Mathilde pattern today and found myself wanting to make one. I like the concept of your contest, it keeps it flowing. Nice.

  135. Amber says:

    What a beautiful pattern!

  136. Claire S says:

    Great blouse, fab idea, and would give me the much needed kick up the backside to get my oft dreamed about blog up and running. A great first project to blog about – and exercise my rusty sewing skills!

  137. Maggie says:

    What fun! Count me in too πŸ™‚ I have some fun buttons that I got in London, so that would be so fitting!

  138. it would be too weird if i was struck by the luck-of-the-draw twice, but i’ll give it a try anyway. i do love this blouse. and those buttons!
    happy anniversary to you and your blog!!

  139. I’d love to make the blouse and pass on the pleasure of owning such a nice pattern!

  140. catherine says:

    what a delightful continuous give away! not only would i end up making a lovely blouse, but it might encourage me to start blogging again.

  145. Caroline says:

    Brilliant idea – I’m sewing my first Mathillde blouse at the moment (it won’t be the last!). Choosing some fabric to go with those cute buttons would be wonderful!

  146. velosewer says:

    That sounds like an excellent idea for a giveaway. The Mathillde blouse would be perfect for work in silk.

  147. grace says:

    That’s a really good idea, Please enter me

  148. kaitui_kiwi says:

    Exciting! I’d love to get in on this! Happy Blogiversary πŸ™‚

  152. Andrea says:

    I want it!! πŸ™‚

  153. Rhi says:

    Ah, I’d love to make the blouse, I’ve been admiring all Tilly’s versions for a while now… πŸ™‚ And this reminds me, I really need to start up with blogging (again)- I started one last year but then life got in the way and I only did about 3 posts so it’s looking very sad and lonely at the moment! πŸ™ Not as though I have a lack of things to write about either -like Claire said above, maybe this could be the push I need to get on it haha!

  154. Maria says:

    Thank you and thank Tilly for this great giveaway. I’ve been following Tilly’s tutorial and would love to win the pattern and buttons so I can make it. Looking forward to many more patterns from Tilly! Crossing my fingers and hoping I win :o)

  155. DonnaB says:

    One of my sewulations this year was to sew a blouse and restart my blog, this would give me no excuses!

  156. ariada says:

    Ah, I love how you twist all the giveaways and make them so irresistible. πŸ™‚

  157. Sarah says:

  164. senjiva says:

    I’ll put my name in. If I win the Mathilde pattern, that means I am obligated, nay, forced to actually sew for myself and not just clients as I do 8-10 hours a day. Your particular version was really quite beautiful.

  165. Hatti says:

    This is a lovely idea! I would love to win, I have adored this blouse since Tilly made her first version on her blog.

  166. You always come up with the best ideas! I’m in!

    The Mathilde blouse is lovely and looks fabulous on everyone in their pics. I didn’t send you a sewlution in time for your jar but mine was to make a shirt and I did! So, the blouse shouldn’t be too challenging. I may well purchase if not lucky enough to win!
