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 the 40s. It looks great with our Swing Trousers and 40s 'Whirlaway' Skirt. This blouse has been made in a specially sourced rayon crepe fabric - in Ivory, feels really vintage!
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
Sleeve length - 54cm from sleeve head to start of cuff. Cuff is 4 cm.
Made in Euope

Please refer to the table below as a size guide:-
Please allow for a 3-6% shrinkage after washing.
Beautiful blouse - the material is lovely and it looks so 40s. The only thing is that I'm quite tall, and have longish arms so found that the sleeves were too short (the didn't reach my wrists). Sadly had to return it.
This is a really elegant blouse with lovely authentic details that really set it apart. I wondered if the material might be quite transparent being a light colour, but needn’t have worried. The material is a lovely weight and falls beautifully from the gathers at the yoke. I may move the buttons slightly on the cuffs to achieve a more fitted feel to the wrists, but this would be out of personal preference rather than necessity.
