bow tie blouse

The 50s were a great time to be a curvy gal and nothing shows of curves like a great pencil skirt.

 

I used McCall’s 5121 for this great 50s pencil skirt. I also made this blouse from a 50s style pattern in Gertie’s New Book For Better Sewing. Bow!

I used a black button on the waist for a cute retro detail.

I love the kick pleat in the back. It’s so fun!

Pencil skirts are such a great basic! I can see myself making this pattern again and again! It’s just 3 pieces and takes only one yard of fabric. More pictures and construction details on my blog.
