Subversive Femme

Puck, a Fashionable Blouse c. 1935

Firstly I’m apologising in advance – its getting into crazy Mardi Gras season right now and I’m trying to organise events for two different community organisations which doesn’t leave much blog time!

Life will be back to normal late February when I can resume normal posting…
I’m also planning to do a giveaway shortly, so keep your eyes peeled.

In the meantime, I hope you like this sweet little blouse from ‘Fashionable Knits’ by the American Thread Company (1935). Size 16 fits a 32″ bust, but the rib would be stretchy enough up to a 35″ I believe.

A great way to use up some pretty ribbon you have stashed away!

    Wow! How the sizing really has changed, haha! I work at a vintage and new boutique and people get disappointed all the time “wow, this size 12 does not fit me at all!! Did I get bigger?” I have to kindly explain that the sizing is pretty different and that they all wore different undergarments as well. Very interesting post!
