Description

Here's a practical and very useful pattern which provides 5 different style-ways, although I can see more possibilities with a little mixing and matching. From sleeveless to short to three-quarter length sleeves, this is probably the one and only pattern you need to make a closet full of simple, yet stylish, blouses.

Bust: 97cms/38”
Waist: 76cms/30”
Hip: 102cms/40”

This is a vintage paper pattern. It is complete. It is unused.

The outside envelope has seen quite a few miles and many boxes and cupboards in its day. It was part of my mother's library of sewing (and knitting) patterns. I think I genetically carry the same gene for crafting as I have quite a few of my own patterns (along with knitting) but, sadly, I'm no longer able to find the time to create all these lovely clothes any more.

The pattern itself has been prepared for use, but I don't think it was ever used as it has not been cut around the 'cut' lines. It's all there - I checked each piece.

This true vintage pattern was printed in 1965. 1965! Weren't we stylish then?! But hey, let's face it, elegance never goes out of fashion. Don't they say "what goes around, comes around"?

Inspiration

My mother collected sewing (and knitting) patterns. Mum's collection started before I was born (before the Cold War! that's all you're getting from me about my age!). All my clothes were made by her when I was young, including my underwear! She passed on her love of sewing, knitting and all kinds of crafting, to me in my genes, I suppose because, as soon as I was old enough, I started collecting my own 'vintage treasures' to add to mum’s accumulation, scouring charity shops and boot sales for them.
