Folkwear #270 Metro Middy Blouse
Misses Extra Small to 3X Large

This Blouse reflects the military styling of World War I uniforms, as well as the new interest in comfortable and practical two-piece garments. The easy-sew blouse features a breezy, loose fit; slightly belled sleeves; flared hemline with gentle downward curve at center back; V-neck and sailor collar.

It makes a perfect summer blouse tucked into a skirt, such as #209 Walking Skirt. It also is versatile worn out, as a lightweight jacket over a feminine camisole. Drape an oblong scarf around the neck for simple style, or dress it up with Art Nouveau or your favorite embroidery motifs around the sailor collar. Complete the period look with #269 Metropolitan Hat.

Suggested FabricsFor a blouse, choose handkerchief linen (prewash to soften), lightweight cotton, or lightweight silk. For a jacket, choose medium-weight cotton, silk, or linen; lightweight or tropical-weight wool.

Sewing Tips

Buttonholes:
Check buttonhole spacing for your size, and re-space as desired or needed. Lay out buttons on garment before marking buttonholes to determine the look you desire. Measure from top of one buttonhole to top of next buttonhole and mark accordingly.

For a different look, pair the buttonholes. For example, space two buttonholes just one inch apart, then drop down three inches, then another pair just one inch apart.

After setting in the sleeves:
The instructions say to press the seam toward the sleeve, without trimming the seam allowance. If the fabric you have chosen is a close-weave stable fabric or medium-to-heavy weight fabric, there may be too much bulk in the seam allowance to give a smooth, unpuckered result on the right side after pressing the seam toward the sleeve. Alternatively, you can trim the finished armhole seam allowance close to stitching and serge or overcast the raw edges.
