Rendered in the softest shade of ice blue silk and decorated with clusters of white rocaille beads and large pearlescent bugle beads, this original 1960's blouse is the perfect piece for your cocktail wardrobe.  

The V shaped neckline of the blouse is edged with an embellished border of beadwork in looped white rocaille beads with larger round white beads and pearlescent bugle beads. The sleeveless cut of the blouse is accented by matching beadwork along the armholes and small internal shoulder pads along each shoulder seam. The tailored bodice of the blouse is set off by angular darts that run from the waistline to the bust-line. Finished with a border of matching beadwork along the hemline and a central zip fastening along the back.
