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, shoulder and back yokes and hollywood style bishop sleeves.
This 1940s inspired blouse would have been a mainstay item during the late 1930s and throughout a colour we replicated from a vintage original - we call it Chartreuse Gold - an exquisite and striking colour (please note monitors will vary how colour appears on screem - although we always try our best)
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
- bakelite style buttons
- waist darts to draw in at the waist
- iconic 40s style bishop sleeve with gathers into armhole and at cuff
**New longer sleeve length - approx 62cm (to give volume) from sleeve head to start of cuff. Cuff is 4 cm.

I adore this blouse. It fits perfectly and feels fabulous. It even fastens properly over my, not insubstantial, boobs
I had been craving to by this blouse in chartreuse gold, but when I was finally ready my size had been sold out😟 I went ahead and took the risk of ordering it in an 8. Well, much to my relief, it fits! Yay! Happy dance! I worry about shrinkage as it just fits in the bust. I will dry clean it to stay on the safe side. The color is even richer in person and the fabric quality it top notch as is always the case at HOF.💗
