This is my 1850s/ 1860s white cotton Garibaldi blouse. The blouse is inspired by antique Garibaldi blouses, such as this 1860s and this 1865 blouse. And here’s a photograph of a lady wearing a white cotton Garibaldi blouse.
For the blouse I’ve used white cotton cambric, white cotton lace fabric, and white cotton bobbin lace.
It’s machine sewn. I had just a bit of the lace fabric left, which I’ve used for the sleeves.
The blouse is closed with hooks and eyes.
The sleeve cuffs also close with hooks and eyes. I’ve finished the cuffs with bobbin lace.

I love this blouse! I’m trying to make a Garibaldi blouse myself; I’m curious where you got the pattern from or how you drafted it?
Thank you! You can adapt one of the 1850s/1860s bodice patterns on this site or this site.
