Ruffled blouse from 1944

July 15, 2010

YAY! I am super excited to have finished Simplicity 1722, the ruffled blouse pattern from 1944:

Overall, it was pretty easy to put together (but time consuming!).  The ruffle was super easy and hemmed it by hand.  The only alteration I made to the pattern was to take in the shoulders a bit.  Now all I need are some shoulder pads to really complete the look!

I really like it!  I’ll have to try out the other blouse options on the pattern as well! What do you think?

  1. Hi! Great blouse and it fits you perfectly! I love how you posed in the garden with the snood in your hair and in front of that wonderful house! Perfect!

  2. It is just gorgeous! I especially love the contrasting buttons. You've done such a beautiful job and its perfect with those pants.
