Today’s FO is my first 1970s patterns. 70s, you say? I see this as a 70s does 40s design. I’ve seen several 1940s blouses that look similar to this design. The big difference is that this pattern is for knits, which was rare-to-nonexistant in 40s designs. I love sewing with knits and I find them much warmer in the winter. (yes, I’m thinking about winter already). I consider this a wearable muslin. Since this was my first time grading a knit pattern, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It could use some more length along the shoulder seam and possibly an inch in length above the waist. Other than that, I really like this. I want to try the sweethear neckline, also.
I also made another 1950s top, this time, with Alexander Henry tattoo fabric. I found the pattern number, it’s Simplicity 3263
