ooobop! sleeveless blouse

I feel like I’m slightly cheating by not having created this from a vintage pattern but I’m convinced the end result has a 40s twist to it. I have been drawling over vintage patterns and dreaming of my next dress but a reality check reminded me that I need some wardrobe basics to replace the tatty ones that come out year after year! This pattern was actually from a Burdastyle magazine, September issue. Very simple to put together, in only a few hours. The little flower buttons were a fabulous find from a local vintage fair a few weeks ago. They were begging to go on a blouse like this! The pleats on the neck/shoulder are very interesting and quite flattering for a minimal bust! The yoke extends from the back section and joins the pleated fronts. I used a bias trim to edge the armholes. More details on my blog

  • I agree on the retro look, that neckline was very popular on dresses through the 50s and 60s, I always admire it when I see it, such a great detail!

  • Thanks Molly. I'm looking forward to wearing it to the office tomorrow!
