1940s Hand-Painted Blouse
Vintage 1940s hand-painted blouse. Glorious balloon sleeves, high neckline and fitted waist. Delicate flowers hand-painted around the neckline with dainty grey brush strokes down the bodice to flatter the figure. Buttons down the back. Attached squared shoulder pads and darted waist for a classic 40s silhouette. The blouse is handmade and unsigned, with hand-finishing at the neckline and buttonholes of the cuffs. French style cuffs~ to be used with cufflinks, no buttons attached. Fabric is probably nylon. Very good condition, only gentle wear. There is a small scattering of pinholes, the worst under one arm (see photo). Clean fresh & ready to wear.
