Although the winter weather has well and truly set in, I find my thoughts turning to floaty, feminine blouses. In the last two days I have washed no less than four pieces of fabric, but can't decided which one I'd like to use first. Then there's the pattern...
I've mentioned previously just how much I love Vogue patterns; they have such lovely design features, the instructions are very clear and the illustrations always get my attention. I particularly like their 1940s blouses and have quite a few in my pattern collection. These are some of my favourites:
I have some deep purple satin with a floral print in my stash which has been ear-marked for this one.
I don't have any fabric in mind for this one, but I do love the satiny stripes, not to mention the classy little tuxedo collar. Tres chic!!
I love this day-to-evening style blouse with its radiating tucks at the neckline; the perfect fabric is yet to make itself known.
This is another simple but elegant blouse; the version with the waist tie can be made with a sexy split opening at the back. Like I said, it's all in the details.
And then there's this softly tailored day blouse. This is the blouse I've been daydreaming about, either version would do. I've several fabric choices, most of them blue, but I'm not sure which one I should go with.
They're all so pretty.
Which one would you choose?
