On a recent trek to the antique store, I found a cache of vintage patterns! One of them was this lovely belted blouse from a 1940s Hollywood Pattern. It is such a lovely style, and the pattern is a cinch to make!
I made the yoke, collar, pocket contrast and belt out of a contrasting fabric. I lined the pocket so as to not have seams visible inside.
The pattern features a yoke that is topstitched onto the front and back bodice. I just love that way of sewing seams!
As cute as this style is, it just does not look very good on me. I’ve never been able to wear belted-blouse styles, and this unfortunately is no exception!
The good part is, it looks beautiful on my mom! I’m happy to get to see my work on someone else, so I don’t really mind. 🙂
Have you ever made a belted blouse?
