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.

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.
