Description

I made this blouse from a vintage size 8. I had to do a lot of size grading. I made two muslins, and a final. Gussets were tricky for me in the sleeve. If I make it again, I’m going to make the tie longer. It comes undone unless I wear a brooch, which is what I think it’s designed for. It was not a difficult blouse to sew after the size and fitting were flushed out. Also, some of the sewing markings on the pattern were unfamiliar. The pattern might have not originated from the US.

Material Notes

The second wearable muslin was made in a not-so-stretchy vintage knit I picked up from FABMO. The final was a straight cotton, not too thin from Harts Fabrics in Santa Cruz. I actually like the way the knit looks better even though I’m not crazy about the print.

    What a lovely blouse! That integrated tie-detail is great.

      thanks! It is an unusual, genius, one-piece pattern.
