We will be closed between the 12th and the 20th September to allow us to have an Autumn break. You will still be able to place orders and mail us, we promise to deal with these promptly on our return.

The post is finally starting to catch up and services are getting quicker again. This has been a challenging time for all of us with supplies being slow to arrive and leave but we got through it and we thank you for your patience and loyalty.

Signatures are still not being collected on UK delivery services and if your order is urgent we do still suggest you use one of our upgraded services. Courier delivery is available on request.

All Good Wishes, Liz and the team


1908 Countryside Blouse

1908 Countryside Blouse

Truly Victorian's  Countryside Blouse is based on a photograph of a farm girl taken around 1908-1910. Similar style elements are found in fashion magazines from 1907-1909. It has a yoke that covers the top of the shoulders, with front and back panels that gather onto the yoke. The sleeve is a bishop style, and can be long or just below the elbow. Both sleeve lengths have a placket and button cuff closure. The front has a button placket closure, and closes at the neck with collar studs. An optional detachable collar can be added over the collar band of the blouse. The back waist is gathered, and tie strings are added to tie around the waist, controlling the pouf of the blouse.

What is interesting about the original photo from the fashion plates, are the gathers to the yoke. Most fashionable blouses for these years are tucked, instead of the gathered. This gives the blouse a more rural/utilitarian feel to it. A four-in-hand tie or bow tie can be worn with the detachable collar, but is not included in this pattern.
