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
- high neckline on this style is faithful to the original garment styles
- vintage replica buttons
- cute slightly puffed short sleeves, gathers into armhole and one tuck at bottom
Made in Europe
Fabric: 100% rayon
Washing instructions: cool hand wash (some shrinkage may occur)
Choose by bust size - this is a very loose fit to allow for the iconic 1940s 'blouson' look and 3% shrinkage after washing.
If you prefer it closer fitting - customer feedback is telling us that this garment is larger than expected.

I bought this shirt a couple of years ago (and I forgot to review it!!). I am between the sizes UK8 and UK10, and I got this one in a UK8. The patters is made in a way that it fits baggy and nice pre-wash, but that it will still fit perfect after the first washing (there's some shrinkage, but it's already taken into account in the pattern). The material is not seethrough unless you wear black/dark underwear. It's very fresh and the fabric moves beautifully, it's really breezy and comfortable to wear during summertime. After 2 years, and several washes in the washing machine (cold water, delicate cycle) I must say that the blouse is in the exact same perfect condition than the day I bought it, and it has kept its shape and size. I'll advise to choose your size using your bust measurements, and if you are in between sizes like me, yo can pick the smaller one and you'll se it fits just perfect (in the ivory at least, the powder blue one has a resized pattern so I would pick the bigger one in that case). I liked this blouse so much that I bought it in all colours available. The quality is superb and the materials a delight. Cannot wait to see new colours of it!
I LOVE THIS BLOUSE! I have wanted it for a long time and finally ordered it in 14, which should be my size but it was huge and the wonderful HOF team exchanged it quickly and with no problems. the 12 fits like a dream; the material, the buttons, everything is outstanding quality as all clothes I have from HOF. I will definetly order this blouse in other colours too!
