Vintage 1940s Unused Embroidered Organdy Voile Blouse NOS Old Store Stock Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This product is unavailable
This is a wonderful 1940s era embroidered organdy voile fabric blouse, unused old stock that came from a Chinese clothing store that was in business from the 1940s until the 1980s. Even though it came from a Chinese store, it doesn’t have the look of a Chinese made piece, although the embroidery is detailed and obviously took some time to do. The blouse is embroidered with small flowers over the upper bodice. It is sleeveless, has a small collar, and a notched opening at the upper front that closes with two ties at the neck. It still retains a small hang tag size, which is handwritten as size 36 with an original price of $8.95 (see last close-up photo) - I’m not sure if the tag is the first original price, or changed at some point. There is a drawstring inside of a seam near the bottom of the blouse - the seam has not been opened so that you can use it, so another sign of it not having been used.
