Historical Stitches Pattern 1011 – easy to sew and easy to wear!
A beautiful hawaiian tea-timer (pake) blouse from the 1950s – available in sizes S-M-L-XL!
I graded this pattern to provide multiple sizes – the original was not available in XL size and why should volup sewers miss out?
I’m wearing a Large size in the listing photo, and my bust measures 44”(110cm).
Instant Download to print yourself at home on USA letter and A4 sized paper.

***** More information about this pattern *****
Historical Stitches patterns are digital reproductions of original patterns, normally only in one size. The original instructions are included, which are not as comprehensive as modern sewing pattern instructions. I am more than willing to provide tech assistance if you need it. Because of this I would not recommend Historical Stitches patterns for brand new sewers.
The pattern is in a two part Download – an instruction file and a pattern file.
The digital pattern can be printed on either A4 or 8.5″ x 11″ paper.
I would suggest the difficulty rating for this pattern as an Easy Intermediate.
I can also email it to you instead if requested.
