Vintage 60s Chinese Embroidered Pure Silk Blouse Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a late 1960s or early 1970s era pure silk short sleeved blouse made in China. The blouse is embroidered in a grey floral design against a light cream white background. The collar is long and pointy, in keeping with the style of the time.
It has an open neckline and closes with four buttons down the front - the original owner added a white velcro strip between the first and second buttons so that the blouse wouldn’t “gap” at the bust. It is not at all apparent and actually not a bad idea - it’s stitched in, so you could remove it if desired.
