MID-CENTURY BLOUSE FINDS. I’M ALWAYS THRILLED BY THEM!

img_3906.jpg

These are all great,  but I always love peasant blouses and Sixties cotton blouses.  The true ones are becoming more and more rare and are so fun to encounter.  They are always a go-to for me in the summer.

Nothing could have been more iconic in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.  Some of the little-white-blouses had embroidery on them, too, but not big and bold like the peasant variety.  Although popular back to the Forties, these examples come from the Sixties and, maybe, early Seventies.

Yes, another trio to find closet room and happy wearing come next May . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ICONIC TRUE VINTAGE MID-FIFTIES SUMMER SKIRT AND BLOUSE

A full skirt (the original owner might have worn a crinoline underneath!) and a peasant blouse were popular outfits in both the 1940’s and 1950’s. I have most often seen them in old movies and TV programs.

The most special thing about this skirt is the Egyptian theme decoration printed all around. The colors are great, the cotton is soft and heavy. Should be worn with a wide belt.

The blouse is pretty, too, with the lacy ruffle. Off-the-shoulder necklines (it’s got elastic around the top) are super-flattering to almost every figure.

This would make a cute hostess outfit. It just says “get out and play” to me!
