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

Same fabric than the long sleeves blouse with buttons but sleeves are a bit shorter and it just fits better if you are not very tall, shoulder pads are also very helpful.
Very 40s but will also match some basic modern denim or any black bottom.
I ordered my usual size even if afraid that bust will be snug but it ended fitting ok with no gaping in the end.
Sizing up would have drowned me in the shoulder area.

I own MANY HoF blouses (40's shirt blouse, side tie blouse, prim blouse) and it's a struggle to accommodate the bust because then the shoulders are too large and need to be tailored. I took a chance on this one and ordered my smaller size (14) and it fits my 32GG self perfectly without any need for tailoring. I've really struggled with the other long sleeve styles that tend to swamp me in a 16 or pull at the buttons in a 14 so I was thrilled with the fit on this, and will buy more when there are more colors to choose from (hoping for a lighter cream color and more jewel tones!)
