This 1940's bright paisley print silk blouse on a soft cream coloured base, with a black outlined pattern set off by chartreuse, purple and tan block coloured details, is the perfect piece to add to your everyday wardrobe.
The pointed collared neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line set off by internally sewn shoulder pads in matching silk fabric. The full length sleeves draw in along the matching fabric cuffs, with single button fastenings along each one. The elegant cut of the blouse is accented by central pearlised buttons, and tailored darts that draw in the waistline.
