Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Mulberry Rayon Sportswear Shirt


Glorious 1940s sportswear shirt. Iconic details~ notched collar, puffed sleeves, shirred shoulder yoke and patch pockets on the hips. Original dark grey mother of pearl buttons. The silhouette is so wonderful, the strong lines so favored by Katherine Hepburn. Rich shade of mulberry purple. Soft woven rayon fabric. There are faint lines of dye change on the collar/shoulders as if the shirt hung in the sun and faded along the hanger line. Such a classic style in such a gorgeous shade. Perfection!
