1947 Blouse

Shirt from vintage pattern

I found this pattern at a flea market earlier this month. It's a blouse from 1947.

I adjusted the darts a little on the mock-up and probably should have made it a little longer. Next time I'll try making it without interfacing in the front--it spoils the feel of the very light cotton I used.

I've already worn the shirt out to dinner and I'm happy with it.
