An original women's poplin cotton blouse dating from the 1940s and in good condition, complete with matching collar.
This pattern of blouse was worn by women serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service as well as other women's branches of service. It is made from a tan khaki coloured poplin cotton and features a full button front and a neckband collar to which a detachable collar can be fitted. There are no markings or dates inside the shirt meaning it is not possible to date it exactly. It is however the correct construction and material used during the 1940s and the buttons are also from this period.
When laid flat the blouse measures -
Chest - 20 1/2"
Inside arm - 20"
Outside arm - 22"
Shoulders - 15"
Length at back - 25 1/2"
Collar -13 1/2"
The shirt is in good condition with signs of previous wear or use. Overall it is a wearable example but it does have some marks and a hole to the tail, although this would not be seen when worn. It is of course a vintage item so please take time to study the pictures before purchasing.
A nice original WW2 period women's blouse in good condition.
