Pattern Description:
re-issue of 1940s blouse with 2 versions, one with and without a collar


I also added white ric rac around CF and the neckline. I ended up messing up the button placement and not having a top bottom, but instead am using a snap hidden on the facing, and I still like that.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I really think it's so fun, and I would like to try it in a stretch cotton to provide just the slightest more ease. It is definitely a fitted blouse. I would recommend it provided that you make a muslin.

Conclusion:
Yay peplum!
