"Switchabout" Blouse 1950

Added Dec 30, 2011

Duesseldorf, Ger...






I’ve seen this pattern in the internet, but they are not available anymore to purchase.
So, I did an experiment.
This blouse is so simple that it is finished in 1h only. It has only two seams and a cummerbund.
The blouse can be worn 2 ways to tie-front or turned back …

    i love your variation on this pattern!I had bid on this pattern but was pipped at the post! I can see it is quite simple pattern/construction. Will make mental note for future new blouse once I stop making all of these damn dresses!

      I sewed this skirt a long time ago and worn it with other creations.
      Now I must make a new cuff, because I’ve become thinner.
      The skirt looks so great, because petticoat is always great :-)
