My mum wears a lot of trousers and is looking for some classic forties style.
I have the blouse from this pattern, and I admit it's my favorite, even nicer than the ones I make. It has nice darts at the waist so you can wear it untucked. Can't wait to have a go at the trousers.
Here's a version of the shirt in a soft knit. Bit plain on the fabric front I think. Not sure about taking the fullness out of the sleeves either. But you can see the shape.
The trousers made up.
Another shirt you can wear untucked.
Look at the detailing! Actually, I'd like to make a shirt like this. How hard can it be?
If this had darts at the waist this would be the most perfect shirt ever. That colour! Those flowing sleeves! Note the 40s limit on buttons.
