1911 Narrow Panel Blouse
We are very happy to carry this pattern by fellow California based pattern maker, Truly Victorian!
Truly Victorian are highly recommended and beautifully drafted.
This pattern works well for the 1910s period just before WWI, though thrifty ladies may well have worn a blouse made few years prior to the war years and paired with a skirt more suited to the expanding bell shape of the WWI era 19-teens.
Pattern Information provided by Truly Victorian:
Our 1911 Narrow Panel Blouse is based on the Kimona Blouse style that was popular from 1909-1914. A Kimona Blouse is cut all in one, with the sleeve as part of the main body. Our Narrow Panel Blouse has the added detail of inserts at both the center front and back of the blouse. Choose either short or ¾ length sleeves.*
View A is specifically designed to be matched with our Narrow Panel Skirt - TVE30, with the center panels laying over the sides of the blouse. View B is perfect for utilizing bordered fabrics, with the center panels laying under the sides of the blouse.
There is no closure for this blouse, as it can be pulled easily on over the head. The hem length is long enough to tuck into either standard- or raised-waist skirts. It can, and should, be paired with a guimpe with long sleeves and high neck for daytime wear. It also can be worn alone for evening styles.
Sizing and Yardage Information:
All the sizes are included, as given below.
* Very large sizes with the ¾ sleeve may not fit on 44" fabric without piecing.
**Yardages given are without nap.
Notions: Optional: decorative buttons for view A, tie string to fit around waistline.
