Vintage 1920s Silk Ruffle Flapper Blouse

Raleigh Vintage

This rare late 1920s blouse is from the period of sleek, chic, menswear-inspired flapper fashions.  The lightweight pale peach silk has a slight sheen.  The v-neck is accented with a ruched and ruffled lapel.  The fitted drop-waist is iconic of the late 1920s.  The blouse slips on over the head with no side or back openings.



Label:  faded paper tag

Best fits: M (see measurements; keep in mind the flapper fit)
