This charming blouse was made in the 1930’s from semi sheer muslin in off-white, the hand embroidery is utterly delightful and so fine.
The blouse features full sleeves with neatly embroidered cuffs and fastens at the neck with a teeny mother of pearl button. It has oversized shoulders, designed to drop slightly off the shoulder.
A truly fine example.
This piece will best fit up to a 36" bust as it is meant to be worn blousey and not close fitting. To ensure this will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 19"
Flat waist 19"
Underarm to waist 12"
Shoulders between sleeves 16"
Underarm sleeve length 5.5"
Cuff opening 11"
Good with some points to note;
- there are a few small pulls and minor stresses but nothing major
- 5" up from the hem there are some tiny stitch marks where there had been an elastic waistband which would have cinched the waist in.
- a few very, very pale marks which are only see in certain lights
