"The Secret Garden" Vintage 1940's Black Crepe Silk Floral Embroidered Blouse UK 10 US 6

This incredible 1940's black crepe silk blouse, embellished with the most eye catching floral embroidery, in silk and wool threads, is not only a rare piece to find, but a true masterpiece of her time.

Her simple mandarin collar is accented by floral embroidery, that trails down along the front of the bodice towards to waistline. Her sleeveless cut, frames the simple cut, that cinched in along the waistline, in true 1940's fashion.
Hidden amongst the blossoms, you will spot a small metal insect, that appears to be enjoying the pollen. ( I believe this feature was added at a later date)
