The pattern I used was the ‘1930s’ Blouse’ from the book that tied-in with second series of the Great British Sewing Bee – ‘The Great British Sewing Bee: Sew Your Own Wardrobe’. Don’t have the book? Here is where you can download the patterns from the publisher.
Not being able to muster the required 2 metres of fabric to make the full length blouse, peplum and all, I managed a two thirds maybe three quarters version: There’s an extremely minimalist peplum and a zip instead of a true-to-the-era placket, hook and bar.
