Hickory, North C...
The 1960s pattern that I used is McCall’s #7667. This is an almost perfect blouse! I used a lightweight cotton plaid fabric to make this blouse. It’s kind of hard to see in the photos, but it has sparkly gold thread woven into the plaid design! The collar and cuffs are made from mustard yellow cotton. All of the buttons are self-covered with fabric. I successfully lined up all of the plaids at the front and the sides. I did, however, manage to mess up the cuffs at the very last minute. Instead of affixing the button to the under lap extension and the buttonhole to the overlap, I switched them. I didn’t realize the error until after I had made and cut the buttonhole.! So the cuffs are backwards (and are sticking out and look like men’s dress shirt cuffs). This blouse has a rather boxy fit and will look much better tucked into a fitted skirt or a pair of trousers, I think!
