A brand new indispensable blouse for ladies who appreciate 1930s and 40s fashions.
This blouse was inspired by the new wave of sporty fashions for ladies in the mid 1930s when outdoor exercise suddenly became acceptable and healthy lifestyles encouraged.
This blouse could be described as 'polo shirt' in style and features a soft collar which a button on one side and drop shoulder sleeves. It can be worn buttoned, or loose for a more open collar look. Bust darts give some shape but this blouse is designed to be tucked in and worn like a blouson for ease of movement. Pair with our Pleated Shorts or Sailor Pants for a great casual sports look!
Key 1930s features:-
- soft collar
- button & loop fastening
- drop sleeves
The fabric is a light weight rayon crepe in an ivory tone called Vintage Ivory (cold hand wash only). Fabric has been specially sourced and feels very vintage! Needs a nude bra or slip under and is a loose fit. No fastenings - just pull on over the head.
Choose by normal street size - this is a very loose fitting blouse
Such a lovely shirt. Loose and comfortable, great for the heat. The fabric has a slightly crinkled texture which I think helps in keeping the cool feeling. I like that the keyhole is narrow. Goes very well with the shorts as shown in the picture, and definitely looks best tucked in. Mine ironed very well and any creases pressed out easily, though I was careful to use a cool iron and a press cloth.
Great basics-not-so-basics! The style and colour of the blouse are simple enough to go with any pair of shorts, trousers, or skirt you might have (I like to wear it with the pleated shorts), but with just enough details and the twist you need for an elegant look. I would recommend to wear it slightly loose, so stick to your street size.
