Rare 1940s Reversible Blouse - Mayehoff's Changeling Blouse with Zig Zag Closure


  • Product Description

      A gorgeous 1940s blouse that is outrageously versatile - it's reversible! This Mayehoff's Changeling Blouse dates to about 1946 based on newspaper appearances. Both sides may be worn as the front. The first side is a button-closure, with clever, alternating points that button across each other in a zig-zag, with mother of pearl, diamond shaped buttons with sharp points. The reverse is simpler, featuring a very art deco inspired embroidery in brown. The tan beige is a perfect neutral for pairing with a variety of suits and trousers.  Truly one of the most clever garments you can find. This has it's original, snap-in, removable shoulder pads.

      *As you can see, I had to shoot this a second time paired with a skirt, because shooting it by itself, the color washes out completely. The photographs with the skirt are more accurate, but I've included the original shots to show how it wears both ways. 


      Shoulders: 15"

      This blouse is clean and ready to be worn. There is a small, horizontal mark on the far right side of the waistline (right, when the buttons are the front, left when the embroidery is the front.) This is probably from the edge of a belt or something along the top of a waistband, it won't be seen when worn.
