I finally made a blouse to match the suspender skirt that I sewed a few weeks ago and chose the same black fabric for the collar of the blouse that I had used for the skirt. I had bought the black and white floral cotton at the beginning of summer at the fabric market in Cologne and had already found the pattern some months ago on Etsy, it’s from 1953. It was a lucky find – the blouse fits me very well and was easy to put together. It took some time to sew the all in all 12 darts but it was well worth the time – I like the silhouette a lot. This blouse also features my first handpicked zipper, I am very happy with the result and probably won’t sew any zippers with my machine any more. The pattern also calls for a zipper at the back but I just used a hook and eye instead – two zippers seem a bit to much for a simple blouse (-:
