"Silk & Pearls" Vintage 1940's Cream Silk and Pearl Blouse UK 12-14

This wonderful 1940's Cream silk blouse, rendered in a classic silhouette, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.

The rounded neckline of the blouse is set off by an intricate braided band, that runs along the front of the neckline, and joins the main body of the blouse in linked faggot stitches, framed to either side by small pearlised beads. Her short length sleeves frame to wonderfully tailored cut, that draws in along the waistline, with front and back darts that run up from the hemline.
Her button down back completes this classic piece, showcasing the design of the era.
