Description

This stylish blouse has been handmade from a vintage McCalls pattern dated to 1954.
I’ve had this fabric in my stash for a while, desperate to find the right project! The fabric is a Liberty of London City Poplin red rose print. I only had just over 1m, obviously thought it was going to be a skirt initially. But I also had this vintage blouse pattern & figured I could squeeze a short sleeved blouse out of it. It worked!

The construction of the shirt is as it would have been when made in the 1950’s. The seams are all pinked, the sleeve hems bound with green cotton bias & the hem double turned & stitched in place. The buttons are vintage pearl domes I found in a local charity shop. I do like working in this poplin, it’s so crisp!

This blouse features double dart tucks in the front & back, allowing the blouse to be more fitted & less bulky when tucked into skirts or trousers. It buttons all the way up too, but I think it looks better open at the neck.

This blouse is for sale in my Etsy shop, Mercury Handmade
