Vintage 60's Blouse

I finally got the time to use some of this fabric, to make myself a new tunic type blouse. I used a vintage pattern, which looks like its from the sixties. I made view A with short sleeves.

I seem to have a thing for tunics, I think they look great with jeans or leggings. I'm not really a skirt kind of girl.

The fabric was amazing to work with. Think it might be a cotton voile, not linen as I first thought.

I am very happy with the result .Its really comfortable to wear, and the pattern was super easy too. I am thinking  next time I might lengthen it and add pockets to make a dress.  Will be on the look out for some more tasty vintage fabrics.


  1. I really like your new tunic - love the proportions and sleeve length on you!

  2. Oh thanks, I made sleeve longer than on pattern.

  3. Oh this is so nice! Love how it turned out and the fabric is gorgeous.
    I think a dress would also be great!
