This Gibson girl blouse is a pattern for a soft, loosely fitted blouse of lightweight material such as cotton or silk. It has a high-collar and back-buttoning yoke style.
It can be worn over a skirt or trousers or cut longer to tuck in. Instructions for optional tucks and lace insertion are included.
The versions feature full shaped front gathered into rounded yokes, in View B with clusters of tucks and lace insertion. Three-quarter length sleeves are gathered at the shoulders and into narrow cuffs.
In View A , the high collar and yoke are finished with lace; in View B, rows of stitched lace replace the collar. Tucks and lace insertion on the body of the blouse are optional. Instructions are given in View B for a traditional bias bound cuff. The back opening and cuffs fasten with tiny buttons or hooks and eyes; clusters of gathers at center back are held in place by narrow ties, which encircle the waist and tie in front.
