A new take on our very popular shirt blouse - this time with authentic bishops sleeves and a less oversize fit!
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 bakelite!
Key features include:-
- iconic gathers into shoulder yoke at front and back
- neckline on this style is faithful to the original garment styles
- vintage replica buttons
- long bishops sleeves with cuff and movable button to fit wrist
*NB: For those who already have the short-sleeved version of this product - this blouse has been resized to be a closer fit following customer feedback. Please choose your regular size if you have previously sized down.
Made in Europe
Fabric: 100% rayon in Antque Cream - a colour we replicated from a vintage original - which could be described biscuit or a very light tan.
Washing instructions: cool hand wash (some shrinkage may occur)
Fit Class: Loose
this garment fits loosely around body to create desired silhouette.
Choose by bust size - this is a loose fit to allow for the iconic 1940s 'blouson' look and 3% shrinkage after washing.
*This new long-sleeved shirt blouse has been re-sized based on customer feedback to be less oversized.

Another hit from house of foxy. Excellent quality fabric, isn't see through desite being a very light colour (thank goodness!) and fit is very true to size I think, including on the shoulders. Goes with every single pair of bottoms I own, will definitely be a staple of my vintage wardrobe
I absolutely love this blouse. To me the sizing is perfect. I got a UK8, which is a little bit baggy on me, which I appreciate to get a true 40's silhouette. I'm 36C bust, 26/27 waist, and that slightly looser fit made that after the first wash, the blouse shrunk the exactly needed amount to still fit me in a perfect 40's shape. I'm usually between a UK8 and UK10, and I love the sizing The house of foxy uses because it already takes into account the fabric amount that can shrunk during the washes, and the quality of the material is absolutely perfect.
