This is the blouse I was planning to sew for my 1930s outfit – minus the scarf bit – that wouldn’t suit the cotton fabric or me.
But I’ve got a problem. I undid the blouse pattern ready to trace it and found I didn’t like it. I just won’t wear it. I know I won’t.
So here’s plan B:
I would like to make the “summer coat blouse” from The Needlewoman June 1934 in the same linen as my skirt. But I can’t find a pattern that I can use as a base. Has anyone seen anything that would work, please? I don’t feel confident that I could cut my own pattern so I need a base to work from.
The cotton fabric won’t be wasted, it will be one of the tee shirts seen here.
All help gratefully received.
PS EmilyAnn can cut her own patterns – see her blog for the wonderful journey from fabric, through drape to pattern.
