I chose this pattern to enter the garment on the PatternReview “Vintage” challenge.  It’s a 1958 pattern for blouses with bateau necklines.  I actually love the look of the blouse, but it has some fit issues that weren’t obvious with the muslin and I really wish I had caught before I cut the fashion fabric.  That said, I am smitten with the little bows on the trim and I did get compliments on the blouse when I wore it today.  For more blurb, please visit my blog.

Hello! I grew up with a professional seamstress grandmother, and all the women in my family are very good at some fiber art or other, but I always thought that the crafty gene had skipped me. Then some time in 2008 I decided that I was going to learn to sew so I could make cloth diapers for my son. It wasn't long until I realized that I wanted to make other things, and the rest is history. I'm very much interested in historical costuming but I love sewing all types of garments. Even though I've been at this for years now, I still have so much learn!

That’s so cute! I love bateau neck tops. Those old-school darts give it a nice shape.
