1884 50s Blouse
Instant PDF Download
This blouse design was inspired by a blouse pattern published in the 50s for children. It was part of an outfit that included the blouse and a suspender skirt like the one in 1882.
The piping can be made with fabric to match the skirt or it can be the same as the blouse fabric for subtle affect.
You can leave out the collar piping to make the sewing easier and add contrast buttons. You will be happy with the result either way.
As part of the Snugfit Range you can swap the sleeves with 1806 or 1804.
The blouse opens down the front. I use velcro patches with buttons sewn on top. You could also use snaps or make button holes.
The front has a folded back facing that sits very neatly by attaching it to the shoulder seam.
It is best to use light weight cotton or poly cotton shirt weight fabrics so that tucking it in doesn't affect the fit of the skirts.
