This blouse has been made from an original 1940s sewing pattern using colourful cotton by Riley Blake called Christmas Traditions. The base colour is a rich, warm red and the festive design is in off-white.
A stylish blouse, it has a very full gathered bodice which fits into a smooth circular yoke. Darts front and back give this piece a lovely fitted waist and it fastens down the back with original 1940s plastic buttons in off-white.
The perfect way to add a touch of Christmas cheer to your wardrobe - vintage style.
