The Olivia is a late 30s pattern adapted to modern figures. The exaggerated collar and puffed sleeves are typical of the era.
This blouse matches beautifully with our duck egg beach PJS, and they even have matching buttons! We’ve called it hidden apples as it looks like sweet red apples hiding in the creamy beige flowers. It would look equally good paired with red or beige, navy, teal or burgundy.
The elastane gives this a nice little stretch but not enough to size down. Buy your regular size.
The fabric is 97% Viscose (AKA Rayon) and 3% Elastine and as such is very true to the styles vintage origins. However it does come with a warning in that all viscose will shrink 1-2% when washed. With ironing you can recover it to its original width, but the length doesn’t revert back to the original measurement. The manufacturer recommends dry cleaning for this reason but we prefer to wash on a cool setting (30 degrees is ok) and accept the small shrinkage. You cannot put it in the dryer, not even for a little bit, as it will not iron out again! The shrinkage will be permanent!
Once you've placed your order we'll ask our UK manufacturers to finish it for you. It could take up to a week. (We'll keep you informed regarding the delivery date)
