This iconic vintage maternity top or blouse from the 1950s is made from blue plaid cotton with subtle shades of charcoal and dove gray and white undertones. This yoke style top has a sweet white waffled cotton Peter Pan collar and opens at the front neckline with three tiny square black plastic buttons that are detailed with four clear rhinestones. There is another small button on the front strap detail at the bottom of the yoke and this button is non-functioning. The sleeves are short and have a turned up cuff and there is a pleated section on the front of the top that will accommodate a little Baby Bump! The yoke continues to the back of the blouse and there is also a back vent pleat extending from the bottom of the yoke to the hemline. This sweet “Mother To Be” maternity top is unlined and there are pinked raw edges visible.
