So in my endeavors to make a 40’s wardrobe I made a blouse, I love the puffy sleeves and I really like the peter pan collars and I found a pattern thats fits both. This is a modern pattern but has that vintage feel. The pattern is Butterick 5711 and was not too difficult to make, the collar needed extra attention to get it just right but don’t they all…. I also found this perfect baby blue material with little white dots and got it at a great bargain. So pleased with it. Looks really good with my wide leg pants or my rockabilly trousers.

Hello, I have been sewing, knitting and crocheting for years and now am in the process of building a 1940's wardrobe for myself. Love that era.
