I won this 1940's pattern on e-bay today!
It's probably much better for me than the last one I wrote about (and made a toile for), it's much more grown up and reminds me of the blouse I made using McCall 6520, that I really like. Gathers below the shoulder-yoke, darts around the waist, and shoulder pads. I think they are all details that work for my body-type. At the same time this pattern is totally different from the blouse with the neat shirt-collar and long set-in sleeves (I might make it short sleeved though...).
Are those double darts around the waist by the way?
I also won this 1950's (1960's?) pattern from the same seller. There's no note of the pattern company in the item-description (I think that may have given me less competition, so I don't mind!), only a number (1137). Interesting to see what it is... I like the detail where the front-pieces overlap the side-pieces and become a kind of collar on the shoulders.
So many sewing-possibilities, so little time, I can't wait for christmas!
