A beautiful, demure and feminine shirt style blouse - yet an eternally practical addition to any vintage lady's wardrobe. This blouse screams wartime 40s style with its demure neckline and hollywood style bishop sleeves.
This 1940s inspired blouse would have been a mainstay item during the late 1930s and throughout the 40s. Blouse looks great with our swing trousers and 40s 'whirlaway' skirt. This blouse has been made in a specially sourced rayon crepe fabric - in soft coral, a popular colour for the time and feels really vintage!
Key features include:-
- iconic gathers into shoulder yoke at front and back - emphasises bust
- high neckline on this style is faithful to the original garment styles
- bakerlite style buttons
- waist darts to draw in at the waist
- iconic 40s style bishop sleeve with gathers into armhole and at cuff
Sleeve length - 54cm from sleeve head to start of cuff. Cuff is 4 cm.
Made in Euope
Fabric: 100% rayon
Washing instructions: Cold hand wash (shrinkage may occur) - dry flat - iron back into shape OR Dry clean. 100% rayon fabrics, whilst they are more authentic, they do require more care than synthetic fibres.
Choose normal high street size - allow for the 3% shrinkage after washing.
The cut, color, and feel of this blouse are all beautiful and very authentic. I love the clear buttons and the bishop's sleeves, as well. Unfortunately, it's just too big for me, so mine will be going back. I hope The House of Foxy will considerer offering a size 6 in the future!
This soft peachy colour is so pretty. The blouse itself feels really well made and the fabric is very light and soft to the touch. The attention to detail is amazing. I had a hard time deciding on a size since I'm quite busty, but in the end opted for the 16. With a 42" bust it turned out to be spot on.
