Vintage fabric red blouse with embroidered sleeves and tie collar, size extra large
A well-traveled elderly lady gave me the pieces for this blouse. She said that she started making it many years ago and never finished it. I put it together and it was kind of like doing a jigsaw puzzle without the box as a reference. I like the result!
This blouse has a buttoned front, long sleeves, buttoned cuffs, and a tie collar. Little multicolored flowers are embroidered on the sleeves and the collar. The fabric is vintage and a lightweight cotton-poly blend. The front is gathered into a yoke at the shoulders and there is no shaping for the waistline, making the sizing very versatile. For the measurements, I have given the bust and the back length, since the waist and the hips will be the same as the bust.
Size: extra large
Back length: 24"
