A most becoming and feminine blouse - yet an eternally practical addition to any vintage gal's wardrobe.
This 40s inspired blouse would have been a mainstay item during the 40s and looks great with our swing trousers and 40s 'whirlaway' skirt. This blouse has been made in another specially sourced rayon crepe - feels really vintage and is a very high quality fabric.
A special new feature on this blouse is the stunning replica vintage buttons - they look just like bakerlite!
Key features include:-
- iconic gathers into shoulder yoke at front and back
- high neckline on this style is faithful to the original garment styles
- vintage replica buttons.
- cute slightly puffed short sleeves, gathers into armhole and one tuck at bottom
Proudly made in the UK
Fabric: 100% rayon in celadon green - the most difficult colour to photograph! Its a light green, not mint, not sage - somewhere in between!
Washing instructions: cool hand wash (some shrinkage may occur)
Choose by bust size - this is a very loose fitting to allow for the iconic 1940s 'blouson' look and 3% shrinkage after washing. If you prefer it closer fitting - please size down. Customer feedback is telling us that this garment is larger than expected.
Please refer to the table below as a size guide.
This is a gorgeous shirt, but the style is large. I previously bought the blouse in white/ivory, in my normal high street size, but it made me look like a whale so I returned it! This time I sized down, it fits perfectly and still has the slightly elegantly baggy look that was popular in the 1940s. I would recommend sizing down.
This is probably one of my favourite HoF purchases yet. The colour of this blouse is so delicate and authentic to the era, I'm tempted to buy the crocus pattern too!
