Folkwear Patterns with Timeless Style
Folkwear Metro Middy Blouse #270 Ladies Shirt Top Reproduction 1900's World War I Era Sewing Pattern (Pattern Only) folkwear270
Sizes: Misses Extra Small to 3X Large
This Blouse reflects the military styling of World War I uniforms, as well as the new interest in comfortable and practical two-piece garments. The easy-sew blouse features a breezy, loose fit; slightly belled sleeves; flared hemline with gentle downward curve at center back; V-neck and sailor collar.
It makes a perfect summer blouse tucked into a skirt, such as #209 Walking Skirt. It also is versatile worn out, as a lightweight jacket over a feminine camisole. Drape an oblong scarf around the neck for simple style, or dress it up with Art Nouveau or your favorite embroidery motifs around the sailor collar. Complete the period look with #269 Metropolitan Hat.
Suggested Fabrics: For a blouse, choose handkerchief linen (prewash to soften), lightweight cotton, or lightweight silk. For a jacket, choose medium-weight cotton, silk, or linen; lightweight or tropical-weight wool.
