Original 1960s 60s Vintage Royal Blue Mod Top
This sweet little top was made from royal blue linen blend in the 1960s. It features a small rounded stand up collar and a mock placket with three fabric covered buttons at the front. The top actually fastens with six matching buttons at the back and has practical short sleeves and a maker’s label for Tudor Square. This would look so cute with a mini skirt for a classic period outfit, but would look equally nice paired with denim for a modern look.
The top is in very good condition with no issues to note.
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 two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
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.
