Vintage Bow Blouse

Added Jan 29, 2013

I really find that classical blouses don’t flatter me, so I was happy to find this vintage Simplicity pattern. I had to grade it down one size, but that wasn’t much of a problem.
The blouse closes with buttons at the back, which isn’t quite easy to do without any help but still possible.
For construction, I followed the vintage pattern instructions, which raised the question of why facings back then have not been interfaced themselves, but directly at the garment, whereas today it is always recommended to interface the facing itself. I hope to get the solution one day.

    Hello. I think you may have sent me an email. I realized AFTER I put it in spam (didn’t recognize the email address) that it was from you. I put it in my spam (checked from my desktop) and then tried to retrieve it from my phone and of course, the deletion was done there as well. So sorry! Next time, I’ll know it was you. -JC
