Description

Step back in time. The Great War to end all wars has just begun. We're talking WWI. Military uniforms inspired clothing designers to create a new style for women based on sailors' uniforms. In addition, wearing separates just became a trend, skirts and tops instead of a dress. The concept of mix and match was coming around for another turn. Art Nouveau was the latest thing. Styles were changing.

The Metro Middy Blouse is an easy-sew project featuring breezy, loose-fitting, slightly belled sleeves and a flared hemline. This blouse makes a great light weight jacket to be worn over a camisole. It can also be a great summer blouse. The Metro Middy can be worn tucked into a skirt as well, a very versatile garment. The picture shows it worn with Pattern #209, the Walking Skirt and Pattern #268, the Metropolitan Suit. The hat is Pattern #269, the Metropolitan Hat. Both of these are sold separately.

There are Art Nouveau motifs included in the detailing section so you can adorn you blouse appropriately. The pattern has cutting lines for seven sizes, from XS to 3X. See back of the pattern for a measurement chart. Material selection depends of use. For a blouse, choose hankerchief weight linen, cotton or silk. For a jacket, medium weight cotton, linen, silk or a light-weight wool.

Folkwear has been in business a long time and is still in business today. Ursula's Alcove is a licensed dealer. This pattern is new, not used or vintage.
