A stunning reproduction 1930s blouse that is packed with vintage detailing. 

This beautiful blouse is based on photographs, original vintage patterns and an original over-dress in our archive. We havent held back in detail here. 

A flattering shape, this blouse has the key late 1930s features of shoulder yokes, shirring under and above the bustline creating a shapely ruched bust area. A deep V shape with 10 functional self-covered buttons into a classic peplum. 

Shoulders are strong with a pleated sleeve and shoulder roll. Full bishops sleeves finish with a button cuff.

Manufactured in our mustard rayon crepe - we have tried to source fabric as close as possible to the original used.

Key Vintage Details:-
- 10 self covered buttons
- shoulder yokes
- shirring above & below bust
- full bishops sleeves
- side zip

Fabric: 100% viscose crepe
Fabric care: Cold hand wash, dry flat or dry clean (fabric shrinkage 3%)
Manufactured in Europe

The blouse style would be considered a 'tailored fit'.

It is fitted under the bust through to the waist. Due to the gathers above and below bust, there is a little bit more room than on size chart.

Fabric has no stretch in it - so if you are between sizes on waist measurement - it would be advisable to select the size above.

Stunning! I adore the authenticity of the style. I do wish House Of Foxy made their smallest size a little smaller in the waist. I think a 25" waist would line up better with the bust size. But even with that issue, I'm really pleased with this blouse.

This is such a stunning, authentic style blouse. It’s so beautiful on & always gets compliments. The mustard colour is a little unusual & I was a bit worried it wouldn’t suit me, but the shade is flattering and perfect for autumn/winter (can’t wait for the black colour to be released). It is nicely fitted & nips you in at all the right places. The sleeves are loose & only fitted at the wrists which is perfect if you have bigger upper arms (I sometimes struggle with long sleeves).

I purchased this as soon as it was released so no sizing info was available at that stage - I ended up going with an 8, my usual size. It does fit well, & isn’t tight, but if I was to buy again I’d probably size up for added comfort around the waist.

When I first tried this on I didn’t realise there was a discreet side zip. The buttons are functional so I undid, then refastened them all before noticing the zip. 1 button fell off & another came considerably loose. I’ve since sewn them back on, but as no spare buttons are provided I would recommend just using the zip & not touching the buttons at all to ensure none are lost.

This blouse is the most expensive top I’ve ever bought, but it’s definitely worth the money in my opinion.
