A fantastic new 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

Yes! The color is exactly what I was hoping for. As Marie wrote in her review, the color is “a little more muted than in the pictures”. I would say it’s a lovely beige shade.. well, somewhere between beige and yellow. The color is an all-rounder and perfectly matches my burgundy, navy, light brown and dark green skirts.
Marie, thank you for your review, it helped a lot! :)
This is the first Sweetheart blouse I've purchased and it certainly won't be the last. I'm a EU size 38-40 and size UK 14 ran larger than I expected it to be, but it wasn't a big problem as the cut is so flattering and can bear being worn a little loose. Loving the details as well, and the fabric falls so beautifully! I've said this about the 30s shorts as well but now I do want one in every color! Speaking of color, the shade is perhaps a little more muted than in the pictures but certainly not dull.
Effortless sophistication and feeling your secret little Katherine Hepburn fantasy are only one click away!
