    This pretty little blouse was hung with the 30s. Is that right or would it be earlier? Many thanks.

    Oooh- that is lovely! I don't have a ton of experience with 20's-30's items, but that delicate pintuck work is definitely something I've seen on many of the pieces I have had from that era.

    I was thinking the same as MJ, that it looks like 30s lounge wear. It's so darn pretty!

    Thank you. I'll add that to my Design Inventory list. I would have never considered that and greatly appreciate your insight. C

    The sleeve says '40's to me but the hem is bothersome. Were hems like that used in the '20's, '30's or '40's? I think it would have definitely been part of a lounge set. I have seen tops like this with short, loose "tap pants" as well as longer lounge type pj bottoms.

    So pretty, lovely colour. I'd go for 30's & part of a slinky set.

    Agree on 30s and I'm drooling!
