40s inspired blouse

This weekend I found some time to take pictures of me wearing my new blouse. As you could have read in one of my previous entries I worked with a modern pattern and altered it to create a vintage look. I changed the sleeves by making them shorter and adding cuffs. Also I added a breast pocket. 

 These picture come from an older post, but for the details these pics are more better: 

I don't really have much experience in sewing blouses. But I really like it, especially because the basic pattern fits well. 
This way I can finish a project quite fast. Besides, with some minor alterations like a different collar, sleeves or adding pockets you can change the look completely.

Here are some images of 40s blouses which inspires me:
