1948 Simplicity Blouse

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 love this so much that you inspired my to track down the pattern and buy it for myself! Beautiful!

    • 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! :)
