40s Long Sleeve Rayon and Lace Blouse

SKU: 00451-016
Sorry, this item has sold.

From the 1940s, a lovely cream blouse with long sleeves and bishop neckline with rows of lace. Tiny shoulder pads in the sleeve heads for that old-Hollywood look (it's a bit big on Cecelia, so not shown to its best advantage, the shoulder line is lovely). Closes at back and at the lace-trimmed cuffs with shell buttons. Smocking enhances the bodice. Darts nip and shape the waist. Feels heavenly. From the Richard C. estate.

Labels: only a size tag remains (but please go by the measurements provided below, as sizing has changed over time)

Fiber/Care: no tags, very silky mid-weight rayon, washable (drip dry) or dry-clean

Condition: a tiny hole at upper left chest where a brooch likely sat is easily concealed with an embellishment of your own
