Free Pattern: 1950s Belted Over Blouse


free pattern 1950s belted blouse knitting pattern

Perfect for winter through late spring, this loose fitting blouse has pockets, a funnel collar and ties at the waist. I love the casual look of the rolled cuffs. The model wears it over a turtle neck for skiing, making this a wonderfully versatile knit.

This vintage blouse is in a blocked size 40-46 inch bust for a very loose fit. If you need help resizing this pattern, check the vintage knitting resources at the bottom of this post.

1940s Teen Swimsuits


I found this issue of Calling All Girls in an out of town antique shop a few summers ago and I was so excited because I've never seen this magazine before. Its a teen fashion magazine and also includes articles on cooking, decorating your room, going to prom and all things about life as a teen back then. 

This issue is from 1947 and had this beautiful spread on swimsuits that I thought you might enjoy. I also love the Zom-bees shoes, aren't those cute?
