This is my version of McCall 6245, a vintage button back blouse pattern from the early 1950′s. It’s called the Roobeedoo Top because fellow blogger Roobeedoo very generously let me borrow the pattern when I couldn’t get hold of it. I used a modern Liberty print fabric with a mid-century geometric pattern. I absolutely love the curvy shape this top gives you through the clever placement of contour darts and the pretty keyhole neckline.
