Someone recently asked me why I’ve had a renewed interest in 1930’s clothes after all the complaining about it not working for my figure type. This blouse typifies why I have fallen in love with early 1930’s clothing. This is view C collar with view D sleeves. It’s just a basic, classic button front shirt but the design details give it a unique flare. The shawl collar is one I’ve never seen before and the sleeve is the same tucked hem that is common on many 1930’s short sleeves, but with a flat sleeve cap. This is the best fitting button front blouse I’ve made and I can see making several more. The only things I don’t like about the blouse are the drawbacks of working out of one’s stash. There wasn’t enough left over to make a belt and while the buttons match in artifical light, in bright sunlight, it’s clear that they are cream, not white.
I love this collar!
