A fantastic 1940s blouse - with added finesse. We are simply thrilled with this new 1940s blouse and fans of authentic vintage will love all the 1940s details we have added.
We have not held on this beauty.
Wear the collar open or button up to the top, using the loop with the hidden covered button. This makes it super authentic. Sleeves are long and full with a slim cuff which fastens with 2 covered buttons. We've also added a small shoulder pad in the sleeve head - which again creates that iconic 1940s silhouette.
Since it is mainly designed to be tucked into natural/high waisted trousers or skirts, the 5 *shell buttons stop just above the waist. Beautiful tailored darts into the waist create a flatter blouson look.
Check out those pockets! Fabulous chevron shape pocket with feature fold. Whilst you wont be able to put a great deal of modern items in those pockets - they simply look darling and just scream 1940s.
Key features include:-
- wear collar open or closed to nape
- feature breast pockets
- iconic gathers into shoulder yoke at front and back
- neckline on this style is faithful to the original garment styles
- natural shell buttons
- long bishops sleeves with cuff and double covered button to fit wrist

I absolutely love this blouse, the colour is true to the first two photos, rather than in the photo with the model it's so pretty and Feminine- BUT, as I was putting it in, one of the buttons came off the sleeve, and had obviously barely been sewn on, and it has shrunk way more than the 3% indicated, so the arms are now too short for my long arms, which means I lose the big sleeve effect, and it's shorter than I'd like - on the positive side the shoulders sit perfectly now - ill keep on wearing it, but wish it hadn't shrunk quite so much. I was advised it'd return more or less, to it's original size after ironing, but I'm not so sure. I still love it though, and contrary to what sone people said, I feel the prices are reasonable considering the tailoring involved - these are not straight forward patterns to make.
Lovely raspberry colour, great fabric and fit and love the shoulder pads, looks great with Hepburn trousers and skirts , another perfect HoF piece
