Western style blouse with tie and ruffles

Added Jul 29, 2009

Stockholm, Sweden






Blouse made from a vintage Simplicity pattern, which I bought from the site www.lanetzliving.net
I guess it is a model from the 70:s or 80:s (but WHY aren´t patterns dated by year? I have never seen that…).

The blouse has a yoke, standing collar with a tie and ruffle, long sleeves with buttoned cuffs. I made it for my sister and I she likes it very much. I like the pattern but next time I´ll make the ruffle single layered, not double folded (too thick). Next time I´ll also use a more fancy material…

Material Notes

Brown shirt cotton, old buttons






so many vintage patterns!

    Yikes, you could totally get the wrong impression from what I said in my first comment. I love this shirt and would wear it in a heart beat.

    I grew up in a small farming community in Washington State. I remember wearing these shirts in the mid 1970’s. I prefered the crepe hippy style shirts but my Mama Rexine prefered these more modest shirts. You did a great job. I am looking forward to seeing your next shirt using this pattern.
