1930’s Mandarin-Inspired Blouse

Jul 16, 2012
Article Image

Here, the blouse is shown un-hooked at the neck and I omitted the collar tie.

I cut this blouse using a 1930’s pattern from silk jacquard I found at Michael’s Fabrics.  This silk was perfect for this style because of its Far-East exotic quality.

The blouse is a kimono style with slashed and self-faced short sleeves.

Ease is designed into the blouse as pleats running down each side of the front and back pieces.

I fully lined the blouse with silk habotai.
