1950s teen blouse

Hey everyone!

This summer, I also made me a blouse that I really love to wear!

I called it « 1950s teen blouse » because it is very neutral, very « nice », with its blue flowers on white fabric.


This is the 1950s pattern 🙂 (Simplicity S.116)


It is made with lightweight cotton fabric I bought to a sweet lady. In fact, I particularly love this blouse because the fabric itself has a little story : She inherited it from her mother, who volontary sewed clothes for homeless, and people in need. This is the kind of beahviour that really enforces respect!


Although I interfaced it, the collar doesn’t hold up as much as the pattern design, so it lays flat, and creates a very wide collar ^^.


Oh and the nice detail, I like how the collar is built : it is in two pieces gathering on the back. It was a little difficult to understand how to join it because it was almost too easy for a collar ^^.

You can wear it with a pair of jeans, but its also really confortable with a jersey skirt!  And, with this super confortable outfit, you can :

– Survive from a hot summer day that is really too hot and makes you grumpy…Image


– Feel like a s̶h̶o̶w̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶  well dressed up princess…


– Find an handsome prince and take a picture together with a strangely-too-pink-building-that-you-don’t-even-see-on-the-picture in the background…


(matching clothes, you noticed that? :p)

– Pose por a « singing in the rain » photograph t̶r̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶s̶l̶i̶p̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶d̶a̶m̶n̶ ̶w̶e̶t̶ ̶l̶a̶m̶p̶p̶o̶s̶t̶ swinging with an umbrella like a real girly Gene Kelly …


– Make some friends….


– Look for a future trip…


– And finally refuel your car…


… And drive safely back home 🙂


Thanks for reading!

    That’s a sweet blouse! I love it when there’s a story behind the fabric 🙂 It looks great on you. Is that Eurodisney? I have great memories from there. You made fun pictures, it looks like you had a great time.

    1. Thanks Elise Lin! Oh yeah I love it too, these kind of stories are really moving! Yep Eurodisney, we went there for my birthday with my boyfriend. As we are grown up children, we really had a fun time being dumb ^^ haha!
