World War One Era Blouse – Private Commission
Fiona France, a WWI re-enactor, commissioned a lace blouse to wear with her silk suit. It was copied exactly from an original in The History Wardrobe collection. Featuring a cream silk, short-sleeved undershirt, with a long-sleeved lace overlay and deep falling collar. The lace was carefully manipulated to take advantage of the highly decorated pattern to the best effect in the final garment.
