1950’s Roobeedoo Top

January 27, 2012


This is my version of McCall 6245, a button back blouse from the early 1950’s.  It’s called the Roobeedoo Top because fellow blogger Roobeedoo very generously let me borrow the pattern when I couldn’t get hold of it.  I used a modern Liberty print fabric with a mid-century geometric pattern.

It was very straight forward to sew and by an absolute fluke, the original size 36 bust pattern fitted me straight off, I didn’t have to make any adjustments.  I absolutely love the curvy shape this top gives you through the clever placement of contour darts and the pretty keyhole neckline.
