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 ^^.
