Iconic Mexican blouse in soft, cool off-white cotton, completely hand embroidered with roses. Functional drawstrings on the short sleeves for a custom fit. Front and back are identical. Love the clamshell gathers along the edge of the bodice, underarm gussets, and the faggoting between each piece. From the Phelan estate and the 1950s. Possibly a bit earlier.
Labels: none - hand made
Fiber/Care: cotton, washable
Condition: no flaws to note beyond a slight allover aging of the cream cotton fabric
*This top is freshly laundered and ready to wear.*
bust: max. 39"/99cm plus gathers
FYI, Cecelia measures 33.5"/85cm and live model measures 35.5"/90cm around the fullest part of the bust. It fits both well, with room to spare. Shirt is not clipped in photos.
