Surprised to see me again so soon?!? I do have more PJ’s to share, but they still need photographing. In the meantime, I made this blouse from a 1948 Simplicity pattern.

There are some really wonderful design elements in this pattern. Darted sleeves, tuck pleats at the waits, darted shoulder, a peter pan collar, and a button-up back.I love visitors, so please feel free to stop by and say hello, and get more information on my blog.

See you soon!

Never in a million years would I guess this was made from a 40s pattern. The snakeskin fabric gives it such a modern edge. Love it!

I hope you are able to find and make this. I’m completely in love with it and can’t wait to make more!

Isn’t it amazing how well this pattern transcends the decades? And, yes,the fabric definitely makes it much more contemporary.

Beautiful! When I saw the pic I was reminded of the girl who works in the bookstore in The Big Sleep (the real bookstore, not the evil one). Must have been the book in your hand! :)
