This amazing blouse was made in the late 1930s from red crepe with a stunning horse and carriage novelty print. It was cut in the classic high neck silhouette of the period with a flattering cowl neck at the front which has shirring underneath for structure and drapes to the back and five tiny glass buttons that fasten the blouse at the back of the neck. The blouse features the most wonderful peaked shoulders with pleats opening up to give volume to the sleeves before coming to a tailored fit at the wrist where it fastens with fabric covered buttons. The blouse itself is loose fitting at the bust before being nipped in at the waist with the attached fabric tie belt at the left side of the back. 

Please note measurements are of the garment and we would advise being at least 2” smaller to achieve the desired fit. 

Bust: 40”

Waist: 32”

Shoulders: 15 1/4” seam to seam

Length: 19 1/2”

 

The blouse is in good condition with some minor flaws and colour bleed at the underarms as pictured (this is less noticeable in real live than the images).

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in pure white cotton.

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
