Pink Teen's Era Blouse










From the seller:

THIS IS A METICULOUSLY MADE SILK CHIFFON BLOUSE. THE BLOUSE IS MINT AND BETTER SEWING WILL BE HARD TO FIND . I WOULD SAY THIS FITS A 38" BUST. THE TIE CAN BE CLOSED AT FRONT OR BACK. IT RETAILED
IN STORES FOR 475.00...


From Me:

For the record, if anyone paid $475 for this, I'd wondered what they were smoking and get them to do it again so I can sell them oceanfront property in Arizona.

1914 blouses

The lady with the plaid skirt has on a blouse similar to the extant one.  This is from April 1914.  I actually think the blouse is from a little bit later (1916) based on it's length but you can see the start of the fashion here.

    1. She didn't change the description so I'm not really sure. I think she was trying to "upsell" the blouse - making it seem worth a heck of a lot more than it really is to get more money off of it.

    1. Another way cheaper option than buying this for well nearly $500.
