    Good morning/afternoon/night,

    How was Christmas, everyone? Hope it went well for all.
    I bought this lashing blouse (if that's what it's called; correct me if I'm wrong) in a local charity. It has this very aged tag with the designer’s name and the name of my city. I couldn't get any info on her searching the web, but my hunch is that this piece dates back to the 70s. Am I correct? Thanks for any help.

    Pretty - looks like poppies, which I love. And the label looks expensive! I'd guess 70s just because of the style.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say it could also be from the 40s. The label and fabric look older to me and it could have been a tie front top that went with shorts or capris?

    It was my second thought!

    Never heard of the term lashing blouse - I would call it a tie-front bolero top.

    Haha, thanks! Translations are always flimsy.
