vintage 1970s brown moss crepe Ossie style blouse with iridescent glitter repeat print
Sadly it's lost it's makers label, so I will leave you to ponder as I have! Rather good 1970s moss crepe blouse, with all the quintisentially 1970s details; covered ball buttons, smocked elasticated waist, full sleeve heads. Gathered bodice from a curved shoulder yoke, cardigan front style fastening.
All-over iridescent repeat circle glitter print on a chocolate brown background.
I’ve had to lighten some photos to show detail. It’s a rusty brown.
Bust 36" approx
Waist 22” - 28”
Hips free (doesn't fasten below waist so peplum open to front)
Length from nape to hem approx 23"
Underarm to cuff 16.5"
Generally very good. It has unfortunately suffered some minor dye breakdown as these browns seem to, mainly around the shoulders, and a darker spot at front hem hidden in gathers. Still very wearable, but please see photos. I’ve lightened photos very slightly to show it in absolute worst possible example when laid flat against bottom hem, whole thing darker in person.
The shirring to front is original, and elastic just a little looser in places but not worth replacing yet. I’ve replaced the back shirring as the elastic had gone.
There may be the odd tiny snag or pull as pre worn, but nothing major I've spotted. Ready to wear!
