Sweet Disorder Vintage
1930s Smocked Peasant Blouse
Vintage 1930s peasant blouse. Gorgeous hand-smocking adorns the neckline in sweet pastel shades. Balloon sleeves, blouson fit and fitted waist. The cuffs of the sleeves are also smocked and finish with a ruffled edge. Keyhole opening at the back of the neck for ease. Champagne satin fabric, a synthetic of the era, a little heavier than charmeuse. This is a skillfuly done dress conversion, and a side zipper has been added at the waist for ease. Based on the zip it was done in the 70s or 80s. Excellent condition, only a few tiny imperfections to the satin, a few tiny picks and a tiny spot on the back near the hem (see photo). No staining or damage. Smocking is in beautiful condition. The color of the satin is pearlier and not as yellow as it appears in the photos. Freshly washed steamed and ready to wear.
