I have finally gotten around to sew up the Smooth sailing blouse pattern from Wearing History! Isn’t it lovely?
It is a 1930s style yoked blouse, sporting short puffed sleeves, a lovely large notched collar and gatherings on shoulders and back. It is fitted with tucks in the back. It is the perfect casual wear blouse, and lends itself very well to novelty prints.
The construction was really easy, with nice step-by-step instructions. I got the PDF version which is very convenient, no waiting for mail delivery, plus savings on shipping! Just buy, print, tape and cut 🙂 I really recommend this pattern to anyone looking for a nice easy to wear blouse in a feminine, nicely fitted retro style!
