Fabulously and completely authentic. David Wakeling 50s Georgette Wasp Waister Blouse with stunning hand stitched ruffles which trims the shawl collar, and the gorgeously bell styled 30” wide gathered sleeves
Most of the seams are hand sewn and finished as are the buttons. Please note that this beautiful and dainty garment is only suitable for a petit frame, no more than a size 12
The fabric is quite firm and the silk georgette is without age marks or thinning

This garment has been recently dry cleaned and is ready to wear, previously part of a museum exhibition. This is a stunning item, which is highly wearable today. Team with palazzo pants or sailor trousers for an authentic look, or wear with a tight pencil skirt and brogues for the country lady style. As the item is a vintage size 40 I have given measurements taken seam to seam when the garment was laid flat.
