The peasant blouse became popular during WWII as the country wished to build stronger ties with our neighbors south of the United States. This blouse was recreated from a vintage pattern from 1945. This simple blouse is made out of two pieces. The front and back of the blouse are fitted at the waist with a series of tucks. The neckline and lower sleeve are gathered and bound. The Peasant Blouse is stitched in a off-white, cotton, crinkle gauze.
