1910s Striped Silk & Gauze Evening Blouse with Plaited Waist
Revisit the elegance and beauty of the Titanic era in this stunning evening blouse.
Fashioned in a sheer silk gauze and accented with solid silk ribbon vertical stripes, this striking top also features a rounded silk sailor collar, silk cuffs with 9 covered buttons and a silk center insert with 17 decorative covered buttons. The silk used in these accents is very thin and almost has a paperlike feel.
Blouse is fashioned in a fuller cut, which was popular at the time. The yoke and waist are plaited to allow for additional fullness. It is fully lined in matching silk gauze material.
Blouse fastens up the front with metal snaps hidden behind the decorative front silk panel.

There is a small hole in the lining behind the decorative centerpiece. There also is a little bit of weakness in the hem of the lining at the armhole and a few pin holes in the lining in the back. None of these flaws detract as they are concealed by the outer blouse, which is in excellent shape. Priced accordingly.
