Fantastic 1940s-1960s Hungarian Peasant Blouse in Rayon Chiffon with Strawberry Motif


  • Product Description

      There's nothing like a Hungarian peasant blouse - these are the most classic summer style you can buy. This piece has unusually heavy thread for the embroidery, and I couldn't come to a consensus with other industry professionals on it's age. Made of a sturdy rayon chiffon, it is 1940s at earliest and 1960s at latest. The silhouette is supremely iconic, with puffed sleeves, a bloused bodice, and a fitted waistline. Bands of blue, red, pink, green, yellow and red embroidered smocking finishes the neckline, sleeve cuffs and waist, while a bouquet of with strawberry leaves, flowers and berries among other posies outlines the neckline. This has a small opening on the left with snap closures. 

      I admit, I didn't realize this was my size til I was measuring, and you have to want it more than I do! It will be available through May 8th, and then I'm keeping if it doesn't sell.
