... a city chick and country girl with one foot by the ocean and the other firmly placed on the ground (or deep in the soil to be precise!). I live in central Stockholm, work in an office all day and dream of more time to be creative and more time to spend in the open air. I like to sew. I also like to yoga, eat yummy food and spend time in nature. And about everything else, come to think of it!
I love coming home when there is nothing but one yellow envelope posstamped in the USA on the doormat (I could have written "in the postbox", but it wouldn't have been true!). Old patterns come in yellow envelopes, I've learned.
This was another one of those patterns that no-one bid on, that I found irresistable. Even though I don't really wear blouses, and I'm certainly not comfortable in bows. But I love this bowed blouse.
I think if I team it with a simple (and short) enough skirt I might carry it of. Either way, I must make one and see, the cuffs alone would be enough to make me want it!
I had guessed this was a late 1940's pattern, and it does say copyright 1946 on the envelope, so I may be right. Not that I entirely trust copyrigh-dates, I've seen very clear examples of early 1930's dresses that are copyrighted in 1921on Ebay, but the hairstyles on this envelope are more 1940's than 1950's I think... (with emphasis on think!).
