A 1940s Blouse

First finished object of my giant 1940s sewing marathon!

Era: 1940s
Materials:  Reproduction quilting cotton, plastic buttons
Cost: about $25?
How accurate is it: 80% I used the serger a lot seeing as it's everyday clothing that need to get thrown in the wash and the fabric is a bit heavy

The front- pardon the messy sewing area

Not really true to color but yay buttons

Bonus Shot:
A very blurry selfie of the blouse with my Vivien of Holloway pinafore swing trousers

What's Up Next: My finished 1837 ballgown + plans for Costume College
