Tilda dress as floral Shirt version

A review of Fibre Mood Tilda Dress

Reviewed by sewingalacarte on 29th September, 2021

The Fibre Mood Tilda Shirtdress is one of the patterns that can be found in the newest Fibre Mood magazine. The dress has a stylish look with a V-neckline that is finished with a big collar. The sleeves have an elbow length. The pattern invites you to turn into your own style.

I decided to make a shirt because it’s more practical now we are heading to the more colder Autumn days and gave my version long sleeves. After some deliberation I used contrast fabric for the collar, sleeve placket and cuffs. While I was stitching the sleeve placket I decided to give it with same slightly oblique line as the collar. My eye fell on still unused cufflinks with scissors. The decision was made: I gave the cuffs also a slightly oblique line. So finally my once bought cufflinks have finally found their place in a garment.

This pattern is marked with 2 out of 5 stars. It has no bust darts or figure darts. The collar has no stand and due to the size it’s easy to attach to neckline. Once the collar is set in it is finished with a clean bias binding finish. If you use contrast fabric and matching yarn you’ll spend some more time changing the yarn a few times. This really is a good pattern and easy to change into a long sleeved version.

I don’t always buy the magazine and have used their PDF-patterns too. There’s a difference between both versions. If you use the pattern form the magazine you need to add seam allowances around the paper pattern pieces or to the fabric before cutting them out. But if you use the PDF-pattern you can print the pattern with or without seam allowances.
