I made this blouse using a 1950s vintage pattern, that came free with a copy of Woman’s Day magazine. The designer was Norman Hartnell, Dress desinger to the Queen and many other famous and stylish ladies. It is fundamentally a very simple pattern but I had to employ some grading ‘skills’ to increase the size.
There is no collar stand so the winged collar effect is created by the folded back facings. I used fusible interfacing to keep the front folds sharp and little red telephone buttons for a pop of colour!
The previous owner of this pattern had drafted a back neck facing which came in very handy and was a much better idea than the bias strip suggested.

100% pin dot cotton, 3 telephone buttons, lightweight fusible interfacing, shoulder pads.
