BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE GERMAN IVORY RUFFLES AND EYELET COTTON BLOUSE
A beautiful foreign made, probably German, ivory or off white cotton blouse adorned with pleated ruffles and eyelet.
There is a very nice feel to the cotton fabric. Pleated ruffles and eyelet strips alternate on the front of the blouse and some continues around the top of the back. Tops of sleeves are so feminine with small gathers to give a slight bit of puffiness to the tops of the shoulders. More eyelet & faggoting on the ends of the sleeves along with a button for closure.
Faggoting is when joining two pieces of fabric are joined together with a open square like stitch or another decorative stitch. This type of work was used a lot in old fashioned days for a decorative stitch when sewing garments. The blouse buttons down the back.
Perfect with a skirt, slacks or jeans.
By: No tag
Size: 38 but go by the measurements for a good fit
Sleeve from neck: 28-7/8
Shoulder to shoulder: 13-5/8
Fabric: 100% Balmwolle which means 100% Cotton in German so I am assuming the blouse was probably made in Germany as well
Condition: Very good - looks as though it may not have been worn

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
