Here's one of the other garments I made during my blogging hiatus. I made this a couple of months ago when the weather started getting warmer here. Generally, I've felt a need for more separates, so expect to see more blouses and skirts in the future!
The pattern is Simplicity 1201, which I bought from Roses Vintage Sewing on Etsy:
And here's how my interpretation of view 4 looks (as well as proof of how tired I am today, lol!):
The blouse fits quite nicely, but the very wide neck and the stiffness of the yoke and the likewise ties sorta gives it a life of its own in the yoke area. It probably doesn't help that I've got it tucked into a pencil skirt in the photos, but it does hang much nicer when it's just over the skirt or pants instead, but this was the only skirt I had available to wear with it today (hence I need more separates, lol!)
The fabric is a printed cotton poplin, which is very comfortable to wear. Here's a close-up of the fabric so you can see it in more detail:
I bought enough of it to make another blouse and I have most of that pattern cut out, so it probably won't be ages before I make that one.
The pattern was pretty simple to put together as I bought it in my preferred vintage size, but I doubt I'll make the yoked version again. I intend to make the one with the bateau neckline at some point, though :)
If you like this pattern, then you'll be happy to know that it's quite easy to get hold of and usually rather affordable too. As a matter of fact, there's a couple for sale on Etsy at the moment.
Thank you for reading! :)
