Our Bonnie Blouse PDF sewing pattern is a pretty, feminine 1940s-inspired waisted blouse with a touch of glamour. It features a button-up front with vertical pleats on the front bodice, a concealed button placket, flat collar, bust darts and short sleeves with little turn-up cuffs. It has a waistband which cinches in the waist, with a sweet un-buttoned opening at the front waist.
We’ve put together some videos to talk you through the tricky parts of the Bonnie Blouse construction: the concealed button placket and the pleats.
