Description

I made this blouse using a 1950’s sewing pattern that I recently re-styled, updated, and turned into a pdf.

The blouse was so quick and easy to sew and really reminds me of Betty Draper.

Material Notes

I used a really great pink vintage linen/ rayon blend crepe (it took me 5 burn tests to figure out what it was!) courtesy of my awesome mother. (+ cotton bias tape, yards of grosgrain ribbon and one invisible zipper)

    This top you have made is definitely very Betty Draper. I really like it and you have made it beautifully.
