in 1950s,Blouses

This is my version of vintage Butterick 9206 – a tie or bow-necked blouse pattern from the 1950′s.

I used a very drapey fabric with a tiny gingham print and it was pretty easy to sew after I’d graded it down a size.

It’s turned out a little less obviously vintage looking than I was hoping – I think the drapey fabric gives it a more modern edge. But that’s fine, it means I can pair it with lots of items my wardrobe: denim capris, wide legged trousers or even shorts for the summer.  More photos and chat on my blog – Handmade Jane. x

I've been sewing for two years and am now at the stage where I make most of my own clothes. I love vintage style, vintage fabric and, most importantly, vintage sewing patterns! I'm influenced by most styles from the late 1930's to the early 1960's but if I had to choose the decade that most captures my imagination, it would have to be the 1940's. Looking forward to sharing more of my finished garments with you. x

I love it! I think it’s versatile, it’ll look vintage with other vintage clothes, and modern with modern clothes.
