>I just finished the project I’ve been working on this month for the shop and I’m pleased to announce my newest multisize pattern! This pattern comes in two different size packs- from size 30 to 40 inch chest and is now available for purchase in my Etsy store!
This pattern is for the perfect casual vintage ensemble- for dancing, wearing about town, and anywhere you want to take them- tailored enough to be dressy but casual enough to go anywhere! This design is inspired by the mid to late 1930s. It works well for looks from 1935 to 1939, but can look just as chic when mixed in with modern basics.
The yoked blouse has short puffed sleeves with cuffs that are cut on the bias. It has a self facing and buttons up the front. It provides the perfect background for fun buttons, and the cut is fitted at the waist but loose at top. It’s perfect for prints or solids! The front can be buttoned all the way up to the neck or the top buttons can be left off to make a notched collar.
The shorts and trousers hit at the natural waist and the waistband creates the high waist effect. The pants are darted in the back and the front has a single long release tuck at either side for a flattering slim cut. The waistband can be made with self belt loops and belt. The trousers can be made with or without cuffs and the shorts are cuffless. The rise is cut long for a vintage look, but not so long as to be baggy like many originals. They are very flattering!
This Wearing History pattern was inspired by period sources from the 1930s. This pattern is multisize with three sizes per packet. This pattern runs true to size and is meant to be very fitted at the waist. If you’re between sizes order the next size larger.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support!

>Thank you so much, everyone! I'm so glad you all love the pattern :)Diva, if you're in between sizes you should order the largest as it's easier to take things in than let them out.Miriam, thank you so much! What a lovely post- I'm truly flattered :) I'll get your pattern out today! Hope you love it! The photographer is Allison Barcenas Photography. She's my cousin, and I'm so thrilled with her talent!
