I just LOVE classic mid-century blouses with roll-up sleeves and wing collars! It’s so unusual to find one in good condition. This one even has pretty sculpted buttons with a star in the center. Although it’s barely visible in the photo, there’s even a line of fine embroidery in a contrasting green on the seams in the front placket.
The fabric is also do die for – not sure whether it’s a cotton or rayon because the hand is very smooth. This shirt is very finely tailored, with all kinds of extra-quality touches on a simple, everyday garment. Well, that’s just how it goes with true vintage clothing – there’s nothing better.
Almost missed it – but when you’ve got the eye for the subtleties, things turn up. What will be next? – you just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
