An enchanting and demure new 1930s style blouse called 'Harlow' in homage to hollywood star and 1930s style icon - Jean Harlow.
This is certainly a genius piece of pattern cutting. A soft cowl neckline with bias cut body - note the clever panels in the bodice to create this fantastic silhouette. The long bishop sleeves are also very clever - not too wide on the arm but there is an extra panel at the bottom to create the blouson effect at the wrist and is closed with poppers. (no fiddly buttons!)
Initially based and adapted from an original 1930s dress which was cut into a blouse alongside plenty of research on blouses circa 1933 - 1935. We've come up with an elegant, flattering but also darn sexy blouse that drapes in all the right places.
Wear over or tuck in - choice is yours!
No zip - due to bias cut - pull over head.
Key 1930s features include:-
- cowl neckline
- long bishop sleeves with poppers at wrist
- bias cut bodice
- neck darts
Fabric: 100% Ecovero Rayon Viscose
Washing instructions: cool hand wash or dry clean MUST dry flat due to bias panels.
*Rayon crepe fabric is an 'Ecovero' fiber - Derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process by meeting high environmental standards.

skims the body so that is follows shape but is not tight.
This blouse is bias cut and as a result it will adapt to your shape and drape around the body.

I’m glad I read the previous reviews and sizes up to the 10 (I’m B34/W24.5”). I think the 8 which I normally wear in all my HoF would have been too restrictive across the back.
Love the colour/ print/ attention to detail.
Very flattering with a skirt or swing pants.
This is a gorgeous fabric and cut, especially the cowl neck. I almost always wear a size 8 (33" bust) in House of Foxy blouses but I agree that sizing up is helpful here. I like a fitted look but this one is quite fitted in the shoulders, even with a size 10. I am short but the sleeves still work nicely (although be gentle with the snap closures)! Overall a really beautiful blouse!
