Metro Middy Blouse
Folkwear - sewing patterns for ethnic & historic clothing & costumes
This Blouse reflects the military styling of World War I uniforms, as well as the new interest in comfortable and practical two-piece garments. The easy-sew blouse features a breezy, loose fit; slightly belled sleeves; flared hemline with gentle downward curve at centre back; V-neck and sailor collar.
It makes a perfect summer blouse tucked into a skirt. It also is versatile worn out, as a lightweight jacket over a feminine camisole. Drape an oblong scarf around the neck for simple style, or dress it up with Art Nouveau or your favourite embroidery motifs around the sailor collar.
Suggested Fabrics: For a blouse, choose handkerchief linen (prewash to soften), lightweight cotton, or lightweight silk. For a jacket, choose medium-weight cotton, silk, or linen; lightweight or tropical-weight wool.
Multi-sized: Misses XS – 3XL
