Hi there! I usually have no trouble dating clothing, but this piece is giving me trouble. At first I thought it was a 50's crop top, but on second look, I'm less sure. Please help! I don't know what to do with it until I date it. Thank you very much for helping! PICTURES BELOW! - LABEL: There's no label. - FABRIC: The fabric is very stiff; you can literally fold a crease in it, like paper, and the crease stays in until it's steamed. I've never seen fabric that stiff in anything from the 50's. The fabric is very sheer--more sheer than muslin, but less sheer than chiffon--and plainwoven. It's a bit more faded than I would expect something from the 50's to be, and is now oyster-colored. The embroidery is less faded than the fabric. - CUT: The blouse has a very wide, shallow scoop neck, and short cap sleeves that rise straight from the side seam. There are no darts or shaping seams; the blouse has no tailoring whatsoever. - CONSTRUCTION: There are only two seams on this garment, the side seams. They are both plain seams finished with the edges turned and stitched -- no seam tape, pinking or overlocking. At the armpit, the seam ends have been unevenly folded under into corners and stitched down (see photo). The seams are both hand-sewn. They're almost perfectly even, but once I looked closely I noticed that they were a tad bit uneven and that they veered here and there from top to bottom. - DETAILS: The front of the blouse has openwork floral embroidery with some embroidered netting. The back has minimal comma-shaped embroidery along the neckline. There is embroidered scalloping at the sleeves, neckline, and hem. I don't know how to tell if the embroidery is done by hand, like the seams.
