This adorable blouse is brand new. Granted, it's nearly 50 years old, but the cotton is as smooth, crisp, and bright as the day it was made. Unworn, with the original store tags in place. Floral print in a shades of olive green on white. Short sleeves, bust, vertical and back darts for flattering shape. Five-button placket with snap at bottom and a smaller button&loop under the pointed flat collar. In a wearable size. It was too big on Lola (who fell short of filling out the bust), but we only clipped it for the back view. Otherwise, it's either hanging loose on her or just sort of arranged to show the general shape. From the 1960s and the Peggy C. estate.
