Description

From the pattern envelope: The Gibson Girl epitomized the feminine ideal at the turn of the 20th century. She often wore a soft, loosely fitted blouse of light cotton or silk with a high collar to accentuate her slender neck. A blouse worn with a skirt became the American woman's favourite fashion. By 1905 Sears Roebuck catalogue offered 150 versions, from cotton to elaborate lace and taffeta.

Folkwear's version features the full-shaped front gathered into a rounded yoke, embellished in View B with clusters of tucks and lace insertion. Three-quarter length sleeves are gathered at the shoulders and into narrow cuffs. In View A, the high collar and yoke are finished with lace; in View B, rows of stitched lace replace the collar, as was the fashion. Tucks and lace insertion on the body of the blouse are optional.

Instructions are given in View B for a traditional bias bound cuff. The back opening and cuffs fasten with tiny buttons or hooks and eyes; clusters of gathers at center back are held in place by narrow ties, which encircle the waist and tie in front. Traditionally high waisted in back, this blouse is lovely over a skirt or it can be cut longer to tuck in.

Suggested fabrics: Soft lightweight fabrics such as batiste, lawn, muslin, silk or gingham. View B fabric must not ravel easily. Silk or challis may be used; for View A, cotton calico prints are nice.

Folkwear 205 contains all sizes Women's Petite to Large (Bust 30" to 38") The pattern is uncut with factory folds, in excellent condition. The pattern envelope has minor storage wear.

Vintage from 1982.
