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.
