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 Antique Cream - which could be called biscuit or a light tan.
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 (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".
Please refer to the table below as a size guide:-
Please allow for a 3-6% shrinkage after washing.
I adore this blouse. I previously ordered it in Chartreuse Gold and it was such a perfect fit I had to get it in this soft neutral colour, which is so much more flattering than white or ivory.
I took a size ten at 35'' bust and it was just right.
The shoulders length is too big for me. I have to add darts and maybe shoulder pads so the blouse doesnt droop past my shoulders. Like most have stated about the cuffs I had to move the botton for a tighter fit. Which gave the bishop sleeves an even better effect. Everything is a very minor issue that can easily be fixed. The quality of the fabric is amazing. Would love to see this in a black and a dark grey too.
