The sleeve pieces are hand-sewn panels found at an estate sale. Paired with a lavender plaid twill, these blouses evoke the cottage life in any locale.
How to get YOUR size in this item (XS through 3X): If your size is not shown, choose "my size" and type the size you want in the messages section of your checkout process. Allow about a week to sew before shipping. Only so many blocks can be made from the remaining fabric, if "custom" is sold out, there are no more uncut pieces left.
Each panel varies slightly in thread colors used, and there is mild shading in the aged cotton that is to be expected in a vintage textile. These qualities are part of the charm of having nostalgic vintage textiles worked into a new piece.
Tie-neck variation of the National Picnic pouf-sleeve blouse. Let it hang untied for a v-shaped neckline.
Loose-fit louse with voluminous sleeves, this version is opaque, medium weight cotton. Structured, it will drape away from the body.
The elastic at the gathered cuffs isn't constricting, will not press against your arm. The sleeve length is a strategic distance from your busy hands and shows off your bracelets. Dropped shoulder.
Center back gathering and shirt tail-shaped hem. Bust darts.
Machine wash cold. Air dry. Iron on linen setting if needed.
Made in the USA of imported fabrics.
