Vintage Blouse Floral Cotton Voile Frank Oujezdsky Haute Couture Montreal 1960s
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a very nice quality blouse made by Montreal couturier Frank Oujezdsky. Oujesdsky catered to Montreal socialites and is also noted for having made dresses for Gerda Munsinger, the central character in a Canadian spy and sex scandal involving government ministers during the early 1960s.
This blouse dates to the 1960s and is made in a very pretty pink and grey floral pattern printed white cotton voile. It has padded shoulders and a high, empire style, waist. The bodice is gathered in tuck pleats down both the front and back, and the blouse has a ruffled collar and short sleeves, full cut with gathered tucks at the shoulder seam. It does up with matching covered buttons down the front and ties at the neck.
This will fit a medium size, but please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 14” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Bust: 36” around
Waist: 31” around
Length: 24”, measured flat
Condition: This is in very good condition with no wear, tear, staining or odor, but the bottom button is missing - this really doesn’t affect anything as the blouse should be tucked in, and a replacement button can be plain, although it isn’t even really necessary. Otherwise, this blouse looks to have seen little use and was well cared for over the years.
This is a beautifully made blouse - quality fabric, pretty floral print!
