This reproduction sewing pattern features a Ladies Blouse with front pleats and attached yoke, Optional collar is detachable and can be trimmed with soutache or embroidery to match blouse. Original description called for white, blue and green plaid wool. Most pieces are cut on the bias.  This pattern was originally published in La Mode Illustree, February 4, 1912


The source material from which these early patterns are replicated contain much less information than the more modern patterns from the 1920's and 1930's.

Patterns and fashion journals published during these eras presumed that the home seamstress possessed sufficient skills to construct a garment without detailed directions. As a result, patterns for facings, linings and other details - such as instructions on how to create trims, are sketchy at best -- and usually non-existent. Most of the time sizes and yardage information is also unavailable.

Be aware that all of these patterns run small compared to our modern bodies, and were drafted with the understanding that "proper" undergarments and corsets would be worn underneath. Armholes especially tend to be much tighter and smaller than modern garments. It is very important when sewing these items to make a fitting mock-up of the pattern out of muslin or other waste fabric, and make all of the adjustments for your individual figure on the mock-up.
