A Basic Blouse: Butterick 2094

March 25, 2013

I took advantage of the daylight on Sunday and photographed my first Sew for Victory project. I’m a huge fan of 1940’s blouse patterns. I think they represent a great period in the development of design in women’s separates. Many 1940’s blouses combine elements of hard/soft and  masculine/feminine. While this pattern was designed seven decades ago, it’s incredibly relevant today and, I think, looks rather contemporary. I’m excited to make more versions of this and other 40’s blouse patterns I’ve managed to get a hold of. More photos and pattern info on my blog.
