I recently completed McCall 6717 – who doesnt love a pretty 1940′s blouse? I’m trying to focus on the gaps in my wardrobe, and vintage clothing that I can wear to work is a must.
My version uses viscose georgette, and it only took 1.25m of fabric (great stashbuster). The pattern is so similar to Gertie’s Tie Neck Blouse, that I modded both patterns together because the Gertie’s fit is really good.
This pattern was really easy, and if I was to make it again I think i’d use fabric with a bit more body as some of the drape is lost in the softness of the georgette.
The best part of the pattern is the minimal re-sizing I needed to do, to get a 36″ bust pattern to fit my 40″ bust. A full list of mods are on my blog .
