The inspiration for my blouse.
I bought a pattern from Past Patterns, found a lovely striped cotton and set to work.
A closeup of the collar, which was a bit tricky!
I liked the pattern, but it was a little difficult, and I mis-read the directions for the pleat/ tuck that goes around the shoulder. But I liked the look of my mistake so kept it.
The Norwich area is full of gorgeous churches and it was a nice plus to explore them in my 1910s outfit. The skirt is an original, from around 1917.
I made the belt with some vintage ribbon, and the neck-scarf is from Burnley & Trowbridge.
