New Folkwear Pattern – The Metro Middy Blouse

You all know how I love a great middy blouse, so I was tickled to see Folkwear’s latest pattern, an up-dated middy.   This one would be great as a blouse, as seen on the left, but I really love the untucked, swingy version.  This would make a super spring-into-summer jacket.

If you have not already read my homage to the middy, it really is a garment with an interesting history.

    Interesting. When i was young the school uniform for girls included the middy in many high schools in Hungary, Europe, until cca 1990… Now I wonder why.

    Most of them were made of cheap materials, were unfitting and too warm to wear in our climate. The middies in the pictures, however, look so nice.
