Simplicity 1364 My Favorite Blouse

July 18, 2016

I have a new favorite blouse pattern and it is Simplicity 1364.

This 1960’s reproduction pattern really is a JIFFY pattern.

My first version made in pink floral

My first version was a pink floral cotton, which I made as a test, since the pattern was new to me.

I loved it so much I immediately made a second one. This time out of a white floral and used French seams throughout.

I also made matching hair scarves for both blouses.

This blouse looks great with jeans or a skirt and is so light and comfy to wear in the summer heat.

Making this blouse was easy, it consists of only two main pattern pieces and sews up in no time.  I made even easier to put together by making a few modifications.

  1. I so badly need to make more separates for myself. Should dig through the collection and find some 60s Jiffys. My fave way of eliminating the awkward back fastenings is to cut it either on the bias or a knit fabric. A little extra work but drapes nicely. Nice Work!
