1940’s Reprint Blouse

April 22, 2012

I’m sure that many of you vintage sewers are familiar with this reprint pattern from Simplicity. I’ve seen many amazing pairs of trousers made with this pattern, which I can’t wait to try myself, but I decided to have a go at the blouse pictured alongside it.This was an easy and quick pattern and I love the shape of it.It features 4 small front pleats and has a button closure at the back, I also decided to shorten the sleeves.For my version I’ve used some polyester that has been sitting patiently in my stash for a year or so. I thought the print would be perfectly matched to a 1940’s pattern, and I love how it’s turned out. Has anyone else sewn up this top? I would definitely recomend it.
