Wearing History #R155- Sagebrush Early 1930s Bib-Front Blouse Pattern

This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper. Also includes A0 copyshop files.


A Wearing History Resto-Vival™ pattern, this blouse dates from the early 1930s and has a fun, “bib-style” front, with a long, rounded yoke for both the front fastening and yoke detail. Two tucks decorate each side of the bodice below the yoke. The waist is unfitted, other than some shaping at the side seams. Make it with short sleeves with a turned-back cuff or long sleeves with extended cuffs.

This pattern is in English Only, as are almost all Wearing History Patterns.


Intermediate Difficulty. Must be able to construct a basic garment with little instruction. Although, with period instructions only, I would expect for upper intermediate to advanced skill level, with the addition of my text-only written instructions and the YouTube videos, I think this is attainable for an intermediate level sewing enthusiast.

This pattern includes the original period sewing instructions, which are minimal. Included is an additional page with my suggestions for fit watchpoints based on my sewn sample, added text-only instructions clarifying the order of sewing steps, and also complimentary YouTube videos, which are linked in the instructions.


In WOMEN’S sizing. This vintage sizing standard was for a more mature figure with a lower full bust. Misses, Petites, Plus Sizes, and Talls may require alteration to fit correctly.

ALL SIZES from 30" bust to 44" bust INCLUDED IN THIS E-PATTERN. Please enlarge the back cover photo for the size chart.

THIS PATTERN WAS BASED ON A SIZE 32" BUST PATTERN. Because of this, cutting layout charts are only included for 32" bust. Test your placement when making a mock up to see how much fabric you will need of your final fabric.

Please see the photos for an image of the yardage requirements.

--About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns--

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
