This sparkling 1940's black cotton based tulle blouse, embellished with a pattern of undulating and straight lined iridescent petrol coloured sequins, is just the perfect touch of sparkled to add your outfit.
The rounded neckline of the blouse is framed by a sequin embellished straight line collar in a Mandarin style. The simple shoulder line sets off the short length capped sleeves, which frame the elegant fitted line of the blouse, with a fitted waistline and small side vents along each side seam. The blouse boasts a striped sequin pattern, between which a pattern of undulating sequins can be seen. Accented by tailored darts along the waistline to the front and back of the blouse, and finished with a key hole feature along the nape, this wonderful piece showcases the craftsmanship of the era. This blouse is sheer, a slip may be required to conceal ones modesty.
