Simplicity 4256- Vintage print blouse

September 27, 2011
I made up this vintage blouse pattern, probably from the 1950s. I made view 1, but with short sleeves due to a lack of fabric. 

 I made it from a vintage cotton I picked up at an estate sale and used vintage red, plastic buttons as well. Very vintage!

It will be a nice blouse for fall and I can definitely imagine making it again. It was a bust 31, which I rarely see. I am more of a 32 ( with a non-vintage sized waist) but I didn’t have to adjust anything. I would say it runs a little loose. It is obviously meant to be tucked in, but I hate tucking in shirts!
