A sweet 1950s white organdy blouse with fabulous, puffed sleeves, this sheer cotton top is ornamented with large appliqués of ribbed cotton flowers with three-dimensional, French knot centers. The elbow length sleeves are gathered and full, both at the shoulder and at the fitted cotton cuffs. The small stand collar is an attached band of the same diagonally textured cotton fabric. The sheer, lightweight organdy fabric is slightly stiff, with a crisp hand, and the blouse has an overall boxy fit, with no bust or waist darts. The blouse hem should reach to just below the natural waist or at the high hip, depending on how tall you are. It buttons closed in back. In very good condition, the blouse has a tiny bit of yellowing at the collar and underarms, and, more noticeably, on one flower (see photos), as well as a few loose French knots in the flower appliqués. It may have been a large child’s or teen-size blouse, since it is quite small in the bust and shoulder areas. Either way, it is adorable—and, those sleeves!
