If anyone else's eye was caught by the blouse Mary was wearing in the most recent DA episode when she was caring for her mother, I think the Folkwear Armistace Blouse (210) is a very close match. And they have another pattern called Edwardian Underthings that have some dishy things, too.

I have seen several made up versions of the Armistice Blouse that are very pretty indeed. It goes well with jeans, surprisingly.

I love that blouse. I bought it a long time ago but never made it.

I think it's so pretty! That pattern would be a great way to show off my heirloom sewing skills, but then, where would I wear such a fancy blouse??

Here is the link. I think this is a style which can be worn with pants or a skirt. I think it is gorgeous.....if I wear it, will I be tall and slim? nope, sadly.

What is "drawn thread work"?

Drawn thread work

It really isn't difficult at all, and touches of it here and there are quite pretty.

I made this blouse eons, and more pounds than I want to think, ago. I think I was in my twenties so we're talking around 30 years ago. I used linen for the body and for the collar and possibly cuffs I used either parts of a linen tablecloth or napkins cut so the embroidered edges formed the edges of the collar. Kind of a cheater way to get an embroidered collar.

Years ago an heirloom sewing magazine (probably Sew Beautiful but I'm not certain) made a sleeveless version with heirloom laces. I think the pattern has lots of possibilities for creative sewing. I still have the pattern but now I'd have to mess with all kinds of alterations which I didn't have to do back in the good old days.

Elona, thank you. It is pretty, and would be a wonderful addition to a blouse.

I don't think it necessarily will be "fancy", although the one on TV certainly is. Helps to have a lady's maidI can see it working for a more casual occasion in a nice lightweight chambray or a Liberty of London type print and trimmed with less elaborate lace

That is a pretty blouse. I just bought the Folkwear Walking Skirt Pattern, #209, and I am so excited to make it, and wear it. It is a longer skirt, and I am a shorter person, 5"4', so I am a little worried about what length it should be, but I am going to find the perfect linen, and make it. At the fabric store I bought the pattern in, at Lady Lynns, in Olympia, she had one made out of velvet, and the drape was so pretty, and fell so elegantly with the weight of the velvet. She said she also had one made out of brocade, and that sounds beautiful also. I would wear that too! I love those Folkwear patterns.
Happy sewing to you all!
