Kathleen’s Romantic & "Beatrix" Blouses

By Jennie Chancey


I have finished my first blouse from the Romantic era pattern and the Beatrix Shirtwaist pattern. I love them both! They went togehter very easily and look wonderful when done. I already have my second blouse of each pattern in the planning. Enjoy the pictures! I hope I have done your pattern drafting even the smallest justice. I so love the Romantic era pattern. The wing collar blouse is one of my favorite styles and I had looked for a pattern for several years. So, you can only imagine my delight in finding it on your site! I have just picked up some fabric for my second Romantic era blouse. It is a navy blue dress blouse fabric with quarter inch white polka dots on it – very 1940’s. I also have plans for another Beatrix blouse in the works. I am planning some lace insertion on this blouse. It is so very fun to sew and design your own creations. I certainly hope others have been as inspired by your patterns as I have. Thanks again for the great patterns! Have a super week,

Have a wonderful Spring,
Kathleen McC.

I love how Kathleen used the scalloped edge of the pink eyelet at the hem of the “Beatrix” blouse. And the lace trimming on the Romantic blouse is a lovely, delicate touch. Great work!

Share the love!
