Olivia Blouse - Desert sandRegular price $84.00 ($70.00 ex VAT) Save $-70.00
The Olivia is a late 30s pattern adapted to modern figures. The exaggerated collar and puffed sleeves are typical of the era.
This blouse is that go-to colour when you need a base that will work with nearly everything, but when white or Ivory is too clean. We’ve called it desert sand, but it is a beigey greeny grey. You can see it wears bright colours well. Show the sleeves off with a sleeveless pullover or knot it at the waist for a cute summer cover up.
The fabric is 100% viscose (AKA Rayon) 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)
