Wearing History #R128- 1930s Double Breasted Blouse and Scarf

This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper.


A Wearing History Resto-Vival™ pattern from an original historical pattern from the first half of the 1930s. This very chic double-breasted sports blouse has five buttons at the front and a belt at the back. The blouse has slit sleeves and a wide turn-back collar. This blouse dates from the first half of the 1930s and pairs equally well with trousers and skirts.


Intermediate Difficulty. Must be able to construct a basic garment with little instruction.

This pattern includes the original period sewing instructions, which are minimal. Included is an additional page with my suggestions for fit watchpoints based on my sewn sample.


In WOMEN’S sizing. This vintage sizing standard was for a more mature figure with a lower full bust. Misses, Petites, Plus Sizes, and Talls may require alteration to fit correctly.

ALL SIZES from 30" bust to 42" bust INCLUDED IN THIS E-PATTERN

Bust- 30-32-34-36-38-40-42
Waist- 24-26-28-30-32-34-36
Hip- 33-35-37-39-41-43-45

THIS PATTERN WAS BASED ON A SIZE 38" BUST PATTERN. Because of this, cutting layout charts are only included for 38" bust. Test your placement when making a mock up to see how much fabric you will need of your final fabric.

Please see the photos for an image of the yardage requirements.

--About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns--

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
