Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Stunning 1940s burgundy silk velvet blouse featuring tons of fabric-covered buttons, a decorative tie at the neck and ethereal lace details at the collar & cuffs. Pair with black satin palazzo pants for a wicked look! Unlined but opaque, front button closure with snaps at sleeves.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 14.5 inches →bust: 34 inches →waist: 28 inches →hips: 38 inches →length: 22 inches →sleeve length: 21.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small - Small; meant to be worn a bit looser. Narrow sleeves!
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with some issues: some crushing to the velvet, repaired seam stress on inner forearms and color bleed onto lace on right sleeve. The seam stress on the inside of the forearms could be completely hidden, I just didn't want to take in the sleeves even further, as they are narrow -- I wanted to leave that to the next owner. The top button is missing but completely covered by the bow. 1940s separates are quite rare, particularly a gorgeous velvet blouse like this! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Burgundy with cream lace
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of silk velvet and cotton lace, probably homemade. Dry clean only.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment.
