Fashion evolved rapidly from 1915 to 1920, as World War I, known as the Great War, changed forever the role of women in society.
A continuing love of feminine details and an increasing need for practicality in dress came together in the graceful lines of our Armistice Blouse, and was enhanced by a soft delicate fabric and lace trim.
The back of the blouse extends over the shoulders to meet the lightly gathered front, and gathers at the center back waist into a self-fabric tie or ribbon, which encircles the waist to tie in front. The long collar falls softly over a center panel, or vestee, forming a deep rectangular neckline.
Tiny buttons close the blouse on the left side. Long set-in sleeves gather into wide turned-back cuffs. Folkwear maintains the traditional curved hemline that is slightly shorter in back.
View A is made of plain fabric; a soft cotton print would be lovely. View B is trimmed with lace at the edges of the collar, cuffs, and vestee, which may also be decorated with narrow tucks. Handwork notes inside the pattern cover include optional drawn-thread work designs and instructions.
