McCall 6569: Back button blouse

June 8, 2010

I’m so glad Colette Patterns is helping revive the back button blouse. I like the Sencha blouses I’ve seen made up, but have heard from several sources that Colette Patterns might not suit my body shape. So I opted for a vintage pattern for my back button blouse — McCall 6569, circa 1946. I made it up in navy cotton pique. The front is plain except for some darts radiating from the neckline, but the back pops with bright red buttons!
