Burnout Velvet Blouse

Added Feb 27, 2016

by SeamRacer

St. Louis, Misso...






This was made using McCall’s new “Archive Collection” pattern #7250, circa year 1927, and some ruby red velvet in a burnout floral design. The double cuffs are the highlight of the blouse, but my beaded ribbon belt (which I made as well) adds some extra elegance. It was super easy and fun to sew together, and is so comfy to wear. I love how the style is not blatantly 1920’s, yet still accurate. I’m sporting my old 1920’s hair comb to match and give the outfit a little ‘tango’ flair.

      Thanks for your kind words. It was really comfy for a night of eating and dancing at the wedding I wore it to!

    This is just too gorgeous..I did’t realise McCalls were going back as far as the 20s with their reproduction patterns. I can see you have put a lot of effort into this and it was worth it.

      Thank you, floralgirl . You know, McCall’s even came out with two “Archive” patterns which dated to 1912…one of which I’m actually planning on making…yeah, I’m trying to go way back ;) Anything before the 20’s is new territory for me.

    It’s lovely! The fabric is so lush & your comb is excellent.

      Thank you! I was hoping to channel the extravagance of the 20’s…and besides this was made to attend my cousin’s wedding (on Valentines day).
