Keeping it Simple: sewing Simplicity 1364
The all important details:
Simplicity 1364 a superb 1960’s style blouse, I sewed view A.
A very simple sew, only 3 main pattern pieces (two if you omit the sleeves)
Zip fastening, using a lapped zip method.French darts and a boat neckline.
You will need approx 1.25m of fabric, I used a soft pure cotton.
Optional trim, I used some tiny bobbles in white.
My opinion: I have worn and worn it, comfy and cool, planning a second make so this one can go in the wash!
The only problem I had was deciding what fabric to use I wanted to “stash bust” I made a few sleeves up to help me decide!!
This is my entry for the Simplicity Star Sewist Competition: I am entering the best ‘vintage make’ category…
In summer I am a jeans, plimsolls and sunglasses fan (as you may have noticed) as such I wanted to keep this look and style the blouse as something I would wear everyday in my signature style: casual and comfy….wish me luck!
Ps thanks must go to my photographer (my talented other half) for his patience in photographing this make. We were at Sturminster Newton Mill ….that is not a real ‘miller’ in the window its a dummy and he is quite scary!
