Description

I found my perfect blouse! It’s from 1974, and is sized for preteen girls, but it fits me.I’d been looking for a nice blouse pattern for a while, but none of the ones in the big four’s catalogues really grabbed me. This pattern was cheap, and was much more what I was looking for. I did lengthen the hem by an inch, and could lengthen it further if I want to make a blouse that will tuck in to a skirt or pants. I also changed the bust darts to be straight rather than angled up so they’d sit at the right spot. But apart from those two minor modifications, the pattern was pretty much perfect.

The fabric is a rayon from Spotlight, bought last year. It’s beautifully soft, and I love the vibrant colours in the print. Because it’s an all over print I decided it had to be a long sleeve blouse – need to show off as much of it as possible! It frays a fair bit so I did French seams once again. Honestly I rarely do anything but French seams lately, they give such a nice clean finish.
