I’ll start off with this conservative but very of-the-time ladies’ blouse. Not my style (or size), but oh-so-vintage and worth collecting. In this case, it’s a well-made version from Montreal, where style has always been ascendant – so it has a good pedigree. That French influence is always a plus!
“Whipped cream”, Georgette fabric finish was popular in modern synthetics of that time. Along with the lace and embroidered trim, it adds a pretty, feminine element to the style of this shirt. I also always love little pearlized buttons wherever they turn up on vintage clothing – usually blouses and sleepwear.
Don’t know much about the history of this clothing company – sometimes the background on Canadian makers is less available. However, it’s well-made and stands up well against any American maker’s products of that time. I always love to see examples like this, no matter where they come from. Keep on bringin’ ’em on – and I do . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
