Hip yoke (wear the blouse tucked in or not)
- Most likely from the 1910s
Fiber/Care: no tags, cotton / gentlest wash, lay flat to dry

*This antique blouse is freshly cleaned and ready to wear.*
~ When we tried this blouse on our 6-foot tall mannequin, Delphine, it fit her shoulders, was snug on her 32"/81.25cm bust, was too tight for her 24"/61cm waist, and much too short on her arms. The blouse is sized to fit a very petite woman (both slim and short), or an elementary-middle-school-aged or tween (~8-12 years). Compare the measurements below with something similar that fits you, to see if it will work for you. If using your body measurements as a guide, remember to leave yourself room to breath and move (called "ease"). ~
armscye circumference (armhole openings): 15.5"/39cm
length from shoulder to waist seam: 14.5"/36.5cm
length from shoulder to edge of hem: 17"/43cm
