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 Chartreuse Gold - an exquisite and striking colour (please note monitors will vary how colour appears on screem - although we always try our best)
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.
This blouse is so wonderful that I immediately ordered it again in the Antique colour. A fabulous staple, with so many little tailoring details. The colour is show stopping, but the fabric and construction quality also speak for themselves.
Size 10 is perfect on my 34/35'' bust.
This chartreuse gold color is everything. Love the feel of the shirt. The issues I had with the shirt was a bit of gapping in the fullest part of my bust. Unfortunately 18 is the biggest size. Even with the blouse drapping the gap is still there. For reference my waist is a 34" but due to my bust size, I always have to order a size up.
