Ohhh we do like a nice floral! 100% crisp cotton in a lovely little print where coral pink and raspberry red roses ramble over a pale green background. Tiny yellow and blue flowers sprout alongside.
We've named the Martha blouse after Shona's great grandmother, a real adventurer, who followed her children out to New Zealand after her husband retired. Now that is some trip to make later in life. We think the Martha set is all about adventuring, even if it is a bit more urban than a pilgrimage on a sailing ship - just look at the pockets on the jerkin!
This style of blouse, with the strong pointed collar and darted shoulders shows up in sewing patterns from 1941 - 1946. The collar itself lived on a little longer, still appearing at the start of the New Look era.
