1980's vintage secretary blouse in a vibrant red. The shirt is made of a satin-y polyester- soft to the touch, lightweight and billowy. The fabric has a vine-y floral motif in the shiny weave. The blouse has tuxedo pleats down the front with a rolled collar. One side of the collar makes a small loop that other side slides through for a little asymmetric ascot effect. The tux pleats hide a button placket. The shoulders are padded (not too much, too little) and the sleeves are loose with button cuff wrists. Excellent condition, no flaws to note. Washed and ready to wear.

My clothing measurements are taken with garments laying flat. Chest and hip measurements are doubled. The best way to utilize this is to take a similar garment you own and measure it laying flat, then compare your numbers with mine-they do not need to be exactly the same, just similar. If you know your body measurements, remember that some garments (especially non-stretch fabrics) require a few inches of wiggle room in areas such as the hip. See my "About" page for a tip on determining your body measurements.
