Found this handmade striped blouse in a charity shop the other day and looking closely at its details I couldn't pass it up! The tiny delicate stitching, covered buttons and lovely darting details on the bust and back make me think that this blouse is probably quite old, maybe 1930s. The fabric is wonderful, very light cheesecloth cotton and the sleeves are so lovely with the little cuffs.
I haven't worn a headscarf that way since I was 11 when I used to wear a headscarf everyday because I hated having frizzy, curly hair. I'm very glad to say I've grown out of those feelings now! Being young is such a strange time really, so highly pressured, I'm very glad to be past that now. X
