Original 1920s Vintage Silk And Lace Blouse With Embroidered Flowers and Pintucks
This pretty blouse was made in the 1920s for a beautifully light weight silk. She is a wounded beauty but her details are just exquisite and there is still some wear left in her. The blouse has intricate crochet lace around the neckline and pleats across the bodice. Beautifully detailed embroidery work and a horizontal lace strip across the waist finish off this stunning piece. The bodice closes with hooks and eyes at the back which are highlighted by pintucks on either side of the opening.
The blouse is in fair condition but does have a number of marks and holes as pictured. There are also small pinholes throughout the garment, mainly near the hem, which are barely noticeable unless held up to the light. The right armhole has been altered at some point to make it larger and the armhole edging on both sides has wear and could be finished off more neatly.
