Add a special touch to your vintage look with this uniquely embellished top...
This fab and fun little blouse fro Koret of California is made of a lightweight, fine wale corduroy in charcoal grey-black color. This blouse originally had longer sleeves, but had terrible elbow holes, so the Kimono-style sleeves were shortened. The neckline and front pockets feature a fun piping detail. But, our favorite part of this top is the center front action: lovely little glass buttons with silver-painted faces and a wandering vine embroidery with purple flowers. This embroidery is present to help hide the zig-zag repair topstitching, as well as strengthen this area somewhat. Please note the waist size on this top, as it is a very cinched waist, thus the initial repair need. The overall condition is good, with the above mentioned repairs, as well as a small repaired hole at right chest and a small area of missing corduroy nap at left chest (see pictures for full details).
- 14" across form shoulder to sholder
- 32-34" bust (possibly more due to sleeve construction)
