1950s Tie-Front Blouse
An improbable encounter, you might think, but consider the facts.
They both did screen tests for the role of Scarlett, only to see it go to that little vixen nobody had ever heard of.
They both dated Howard Hughes, too, in the glamorous days before he wore Kleenex boxes.
The most convincing evidence, however, is this blouse. Clearly the result of them putting their heads together in the early Fifties.
It combines emphasis on form with a patrician air. The long line of that V-neck and stand-up collar entices, the cinched waist and slightly open, turned-down cuffs suggest a number of scenarios…but the cool crispness insists on good behavior.
Perfect for that next audition of yours.
1950s Tie-Front Blouse (No. 1851), as described, in stretchy cotton-nylon blend. Starburst pleats at center tie. 7” deep open V-neck. Buttoning front and single-button cuffs to wear turned up or down.
