Project #133 – Vintage 1950s Top

Sandritocrat has the best Etsy pattern store. I ordered four vintage 1950s patterns last week and due to a post office mix-up I was a few anxious days late in getting them in my hands. Why won’t the mailman leave packages at my door even when I’ve signed the orange card and marked ‘door’ as the place I want him to leave it? Arg!

Still, as soon as the patterns entered my possession I knew I would have to make something immediately. The top in the XXX hand corner offered the quickest gratification. I used some linen fabric from Otsukaya in Japan to keep it summer weight.

I don’t know if I’m thrilled with the fit, so I might make the next one with a lower neckline in the front.
