1930s Day and Evening Blouse E-Pattern
Sizes 32" Bust to 46" Bust, All in One Size Pack
This day to evening blouse from the 1930s.
The short sleeve blouse and short peplum looks cute in cotton prints. Great for novelty fabrics! The long sleeve tunic is elegant for formal dinner occasions or cocktail wear. Includes period illustrated instructions with added tips.
This pattern includes long or short gathered sleeves, a short or long peplum, and fastens at center front with a zipper, buttons, or snap closures. Ribbon bow accent, ribbon bow belt, fabric belt, or girdle sash are optional.
This pattern is based on vintage WOMENS sizing. Women's sizing was for a more mature figure- often better for women with lower bust points. Juniors, Misses, and Plus sizes may require alterations to get the pattern to fit correctly.
Cutting charts and yardage are not included for sizes 44" and 46" Bust, as the pattern was not originally made in these sizes.
About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns
Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are printed on sturdy bond paper instead of tissue and clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
