This wonderful 1940's blush pink silk blouse, with raised painted appliqués in the shapes of small leaves, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

The front straight cut of the neckline, is framed by the ruched gathers of the short length pleated sleeves, that gather along a central seam, and finish the sleeve in a V shaped opening.
Her neckline and bodice are framed by a decorated double row of raised painted appliqués in a soft shade of peach. Her elegant bodice, is accented by a nipped in waistline, accented by two front darts
and two back darts. Completed by matching silk covered button fastenings along the back, this wonderful 1940's blouse showcases the craftsmanship of the era.
