Phenomenal vintage 50s short sleeve blouse with Peter Pan collar and vertical embroidered detail on the button placket (buttons hidden beneath!). The embroidered motif is subtle, in shades of brown and white. Fabric mix is 35% cotton, 65% Dacron polyester. The motif is of what appears to be a mysterious celestial being who is wearing a ceremonial headpiece, and showing three perspectives/angles of the face (hard to explain, see photos). The headpiece almost looks like it could have been influenced by traditional Thai or Balinese attire. I think the mirroring is what is most unusual and cool about this motif!!! The embroidery is done right side up in brown, and then vertically mirrored in white. The motif repeats four times. Embroidery and rest of shirt are in excellent condition. Label is Ship n Shore. Vintage size is 32 and this will fit a size small or a small-medium best. Measurements are as follows: Bust: 36.5” Waist: 32” Length: 22”
