At first, I thought that the green/brown blouse on top was a camouflage pattern – but it’s not. It is a 1950’s art print fabric that is so fun! It was commercially-made, with a care tag at the neckline. I love cap sleeve blouses and yesterday’s finds were a real bonanza!
The two on the bottom are identical, excepting for the colors, and undoubtedly were custom-made by the same person, from interesting rayon or rayon-blend fabrics. I’ve shown the back view on the right so that you can see the back buttoning and the interesting seaming.
Like so many mid-century garments, these are sporty and dressy at the same time. I can wear them with shorts or Capri pants, like the ones I found last week, or with a skirt or under a suit jacket. Always smart and elegant, no matter what the occasion. That’s the beauty of true vintage fashion . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. ..
