In Search of Style: 1940s Blouse with Peplum Charm!

Tucked in a pattern from the war years was this clipping of a very happy model wearing a beautiful formal blouse with a pert gathered peplum:



Here is the pattern, Advance 3909 from 1943, with models looking equally happy in blouse with peplum and flared swing skirt.


Let's compare! Both blouses have:
  • lightly fitted bodice
  • cap sleeves
  • shaped neckline
  • gathered peplum
  • self-fabric belt
The neckline is not identical, and the pattern has a front buttoned closing, otherwise, nice match! Don't you think? :D
