Not a big day on the treasure hunt, but still a time for FUN. This custom-tailored Sixties blouse is all that these separates used to be!
Made from textured poly flower-power print fabric in the blue-green color combo that was really popular for a while during that decade. It has a scalloped hem in front (look carefully and you can see) and an almost full-length metal zipper in back.
Although a lot of the mid-century garments are fairly plain in their design and, especially some that were made at home – there are almost always little design touches or tailoring details that betray their well-bred and elegant background. Most clothing made during this time still reflected the superior tailoring that was the norm in previous decades.
So, we see a bit of this evidence in the example of this blouse. Sometimes (often) I have to give respect to the simplest true vintage clothing because of the care with which it was constructed. Wonder what I’ll find the next time I go hunting . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
