Smooth Sailing Blouse, from Wearing History

December 4, 2011

My overall opinion – amazing! This is the blouse pattern from Smooth Sailing #1002.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The blouse fits well (even for a bigger girl) and works for anything from a mid thirties to early forties style. It goes with every high waisted skirt and pants in my wardrobe. Plus it only takes 2 meters!

I had to deepen the arm hole, and widen the sleeve due to not having vintage-sized arms, but they were the only major modifications to the pattern I used. I added ric-rac trim, because who doesnt love ric-rac? They did love their embellishments during the forties.

Did I mention I love this pattern?
