1920's Embroidered Ecru Mixed-Lace Crochet Sheer Puff-Sleeve Bohemian Blouse

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

So chic and romantic, this endearing blouse appeals to our nostalgia for the genteel lifestyle of the early 1920's. The design is an ideal synthesis of high relief hand embroidery with different styles of handmade lace on a ground of ecru cotton tulle. Inserted throughout the design are panels of delicate flat filet lace and Irish-crochet which also outlines the collar. Anyone who lays eyes on this garment will not fail to appreciate the peerless artistry of the fine lace work. The loose fitting style is comfortable and effortless to wear. I simply adore the puff-sleeve design. This semi-sheer bohemian beauty gives you the charming allure of an antique in a garment sturdy enough to wear all year long.
