A 40's Blouse
Added May 10, 2012
I made this Simplicity 4608 vintage 1940’s blouse as part of Colette Patterns Spring/Summer 2012 Palette Challenge. I used vintage cotton shirting I found in my grandfather’s attic and buttons from a stash I got from a hoarder. So it was a remarkably thrifty blouse, all things considered!
The construction was relatively simple, all things considered, though blouses always involve lots of pieces. No darts, but a lot of tucks and gathers to create a loose blousy fit. I like it! Very comfortable.
In the future, though, I would shorten the sleeves. They are a trifle long, truth be told.
