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.
Made in Euope
Fabric: 100% rayon
Washing instructions: Cold hand wash (3% 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.
Fit Class: semi-fitted - this blouse "skims the body so that is follows shape but is not tight".

Have actually sung that whilst looking in the mirror, this blouse is THAT perfect.
The material is beautifully soft and drapes perfectly, the styling, impeccable. I have it in Chartreuse and it just knocks my socks off every timeI wear it. The length is such that you can either tuck or leave untucked for a more casual look. The sleeves are Columbus but not so much that they get caught on things, just the right amount of floof. I wear this and my whirl around skirt and feel my absolute best. The design is so elegant. The fit is generous I would say, I’m basing that off of the Elsie which I have in the same size but that seems smaller in areas. Not so generous that you would need to size down though, unless you were at the very smaller end of the size bracket.
This blouse is so wonderful that I immediately ordered it again in the Antique colour. A fabulous staple, with so many little tailoring details. The colour is show stopping, but the fabric and construction quality also speak for themselves.
Size 10 is perfect on my 34/35'' bust.
