The main design feature of this blouse is the underbust seam that echos styles of the 1930's. The collar and cuffs are each a single layer of fabric that has been finished by using a decorative zig zag stitch. The front edge of the blouse is finished with a facing.
The sample was made with some fine vintage linen. It was one of the pieces of fabric that came to me after the passing of my Grandmother. The sewing of the sample blouse, including the decorative zig zag stitching was done on my Grandmother's vintage 1950's Elna. I dedicate this project to my Grandmother, Sibbelina Nitteberg
