This has to be one of the most special blouses that I’ve found in all my years of selling antique costume.

A soft cream silk crepe blouse dating from the 1920s and made exclusively for Liberty’s of London.

Hand embroidered and obviously inspired by ethnic embroidered blouses from Eastern Europe but with a scaled down and definitive English feel with smocking details.

This would have appealed to the bohemian set who were extremely active socially and living in London during this period.

The blouse boasts a variety of embroidered stitch techniques and would be a great piece to copy.
