Here is my blouse, dating to the year 1936. Believe it or not it is a pullover, thanks to the bias cut of the back and the front bottom panel. It is a "frankenpattern" mix of Simplicity #2614 for the main body, my old 1937 McCall #9170 for the sleeves and wrap around tie/belt, and an EvaDress pattern #7482 for the inspiration to put this look together. I used a peach skin type of silky print as the fabric with cream cling-free lining underneath. There are vintage buttons down the bodice front and also on the sleeves. The insides of this blouse are impeccable - all French seams except for the seam tape covered hems- and I did hand stitching to top-stitch around the neckline and tack down the facings. Simplicity #2614 is a wonderful pattern...has great details, great fit, and so quick to sew!

Your blouse is amazing ! I love this vintage style and have a little addiction for this era. French seams are not so easy : bravo !

Thank you, Madeco!  I really enjoy putting in the extra work to get French seams, which are hard to find in "ready-to-wear" clothes.  French seams make me take my time a bit more and give me an extra sense of satisfaction. 

I'm glad to hear you like the 30s fashions, too.
