"Trailing Beadwork" Vintage 1930's Silk Ruched Beaded Blouse UK 10
"Trailing Beadwork" Vintage 1930's Silk Ruched Beaded Blouse
This 1930's red crepe silk blouse, decorated with trailing beadwork, in white rocaille beads, with pearlised beaded centres to the flowers, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.
Her deep V shaped neckline is framed by a border of bead work, that join together and run along the length of the front of the blouse. Her short sleeves, edged with a border of beadwork along each cuff, frame the cropped length of the blouse, and the wonderful central ruched gatherings. Her simple back drapes beautifully over the form and showcases the intricate beadwork.

Vintage garments have been previously worn and lovingly cared for, they may however have a blemish or two. Here at Willow Hilson, we try our very best to note all the details of each garment, although we may sometimes overlook things, which we do apologise for. Please do not expect perfection, unless stated so.
Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today. To ensure the best fit, we suggest you measure you favourite similar style garment and compare it to the measurements we have listed. All our measurements are taken whilst the garment is lying flat, we then double these measurements to reflect the actual size.
