Here’s another pattern from my giant stash. This one is Simplicity #1906:


Attractive set of blouses; no date on this pattern, but based on the hair styles, I’d guess it was from the 1940s.


I haven’t a clue whose pattern this was originally. It was from a box I bought at a local estate sale. Most of the patterns in that box were in pretty good condition (considering most of them were almost 70 years old at the time). The person who sold me the patterns did not sew, nor did he know the original owner.


The pattern is complete, as are the instructions, although the envelope has had a lot of wear. There are some uncut pieces in the pattern (see the sleeve, above). I think the original owner preferred the long sleeve option in this style.
