Forties-inspired blouse

July 12, 2012

Hi all!  I have been working on the perfect 1940s-inspired casual blouse pattern for quite a while, and I think I’ve cracked it.

 

 

Strong shoulders, convertible collar, and short wide sleeves that you can roll up easily–perfect.  I even found a way to get the yoke to act as a sort of dummy collar stand in front, eliminating the need for a facing.  This shirt makes me feel like I’m working in a munitions factory, or at least the Women’s Land Army.
