1940s rayon, crepe, cocktail blouse in midnight black; size medium to large. Label: MorLove, The Couturier Blouse. Circa 1946 in excellent vintage condition. Not quite perfect so please read the description.
Measurements in inches: Bust up to 36, waist up to 32, bottom circumference 34. Across upper back 15, sleeve length 5-1/2 and center back to hem is 22 inches.
One piece, unlined blouse features: micro-pleated sheer rayon that is gathered to resemble fans. Piping around the neckline in front forms a scalloped design. The back has no decoration.
There are pleats at the shoulders in front. Darted at the front waist but, not the bust. This is meant to fit loose at the bust line. Darts hold in fullness at the waist both front and back.
Short sleeves are set in and have slight gathering at the cap.
The back closure has a placket that covers 5 apple juice Bakelite buttons and a single snap at the top neckline.
The inside shoulders have a cotton tape with snaps that were likely meant to hold small shoulder pads.
The blouse is clean (it has been dry cleaned) There are no stains or odors. Medium weight fabric is strong and the color is very even and deep. Note: there is one pin hole (and I mean pin hole) at the right side front. I have tried to picture it in the third photograph. It is so small it just won't show up in the picture.
Label: MorLove, The Couturier Blouse. Label is frayed. Very wearable and ideal for those who collect authentic vintage.
