First Post: Leopard Print Blouse

by Vicki

in 1960s

Hello! My name is Victoria Perry and I blog over here, where I sew pretty much anything & everything that catches my eye.

I have a weakness for peter pan collars, side seam pockets & vintage patterns.

For my first post here on We Sew Retro I wanted to show you all my latest project…

Simpicity 5645 is from around 1963, and comes with 5 really cute options. I chose to start with option 5 giving me a tie collar & some mid length sleeves. The pattern itself was very simple to put together and the main bulk of it only took an afternoon, so here it is!
