Birds and bees novelty print 1950s wrap top | XS-S

1950s Clothing




This birds and bees novelty print cotton blouse from the 1950s features moss green, pointillist birdies and pink bees on a crisp white cotton lawn background. The wrap style blouse has extra long ties, to circle all the way around and tie in front, as shown. The ties/hem will sit just above or at the natural waist, when worn. This darling cotton wrap top has puffed, elbow-length sleeves, a pointed collar, and no fastenings other than the waist ties. In very good to excellent condition, this 1950s blouse in a charming novelty print has just a bit of overall yellowing to the white background from its long storage, but no real issues to note.  Labeled a vintage size M, it will fit more like a modern XS to S. (I felt that it was just a bit snug for a modern size 6 with a 34B bust and 28-inch waist—but it depends on how much overlap you feel comfortable with in front.) Please see the measurements for more sizing details.
