Vintage Mexican silk needle point & embroidered peasant blouse 1940s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Vintage Mexican silk needlepoint & embroidered peasant blouse 1940s...From the 1940s this blouse is a tribute to the embroiderers art, starting at the neckline, there is a wide band of black needle point with brightly coloured flowers (there is a hidden drawstring and cord at the front to gather the neckline)...Below is a very deep ruffle of fine net that is heavily embroidered with roses and daisies, the edge is scalloped with black & cream embroidery...The blouse itself is cream rayon, it has short puffed sleeves with pintucks at the edge and a band of needlepoint detail, gusseted underarms...The blouse is gathered under the ruffle at the front and back and falls with a slight flare to the hem...A collectors piece to be sure...In very good condition, the embroidery and net are all excellent...There are water marks on the rayon and some underarm yellowing, there are a couple of tiny holes (in the gusset square on one side) when worn nothing is seen...It is totally wearable...Fits a size small.

In excellent wearable condition... All our clothing is dry cleaned and inspected for condition and is ready to wear...Any condition issues will be noted...For visual comparison our mannequin is a size 4
