1980's Folkwear 210 Vintage Sewing Pattern The Armistice Blouse: Fashion evolved rapidly from 1915 to 1920 when the Great War changed forever the role of women in society.
A continuing love of feminine details and an increasing need for practicality in dress came together in the graceful lines of our Armistice Blouse, and was enhanced by a soft delicate fabric and lace trim.
The back of the Blouse extended over the shoulders to meet the lightly gathered front, and gathers at the center-back waist into a self tie or ribbon, which encircles the waist to tie in front. The long collar falls softly over a center panel, or vestee, forming a deep rectangular neckline. Tiny buttons close the Blouse on the left side. Long set-in sleeves gather into wide turned-back cuffs. Folkwear maintains the traditional curved hemline.
View A is made of plain fabric; a soft cotton print would nice. View B is trimmed with one-inch lace at edges of collar, cuffs and vestee, which may also be decorated with narrow tucks. Handwork noted include optional drawn-thread work design and instructions.
