Months, if not years ago, when I saw this blouse on the telly, I thought, “me LIKEY.”
(swiped from the very excellent Tom & Lorenzo dissections of every thread of clothing worn on Mad Men)
Then I saw this pattern on etsy:
…and I pressed BUY as some kind of reflex. I swear, there was no brain activity involved; it was all spinal. I’m sure it’s the same pattern.
Yeah yeah, I know, it’s hokey to be all slavish to Mad Men fashion, but too bad.
Ooh that is one CHARMING pattern.
She is yours for the tracing, m’dear.
Can’t WAIT to see this sewn. I bet it will look wonderful!!!
That pattern looks great, and thank you so much for sharing the Tom & Lorenzo url! Joan Holloway’s character is my style icon (not to mention posture-icon…)
I’ve never made a garment with the classic 50s kimono sleeves, but this pattern looks so great, and I’m inspired! Looking forth to see you work!
