Metallic Evening Blouse in Knit with Gold Tone Metallic Thread 1940 Style
LAST CALL! 50% OFF! Offered is a vintage evening blouse in the trending fashion of metallic fabric. It's not too late for this to be added to the holiday and winter special event fashions. It is a 1940 style blouse in a black knit shot through with gold tone metallic thread, which leads this to more of a brown/gold tone. This has a stand up collar leading to the front of the bodice which features 22 corset style buttons and loops made out of self-fabric. The sleeves are gathered and then gussett at the side for a pleat. The bodice is also pleated at the shoulder and darted. The back features a 1" wide belt with a self fabric buckle. This has a nice long length at 30 3/4" from shoulder to hem, again fits in with today's newest looks. Note the silver foil corsage--it is a little floppy, but someone may be able to work with it to restore it. Regardless, it gives the idea of how the right accent piece, such as another corsage or brooch will add glam. We feel this dates from the 1940's. Details: 11 3/4" sleeves; 33 1/2"bust; 27" waist; 35" hip; 12" across back. The fabric has some give, but we would encourage attention to the measurements quoted. PLEASE NOTE: the 6th button down is gone, one may want to borrow from the bottom. The third button is more frayed than the others--still covered with fabric, but not totally like the others. Both of the side seams have open areas--since they are along the seam, the repair should be easy. There is some pilling under the arm (but not the discoloration showing in the pics--that is a lighting issue). The inside of the stand up collar show evidence of soil, like make-up. We have not cleaned this because of the metallic structure, but there is no unusual odor. Item 11435a
