Beautiful beaded vintage blouse from the 1930s.  Front yoke, sleeves and back are all in navy. Lower part of the front is in pink.  This blouse is slightly tucked at the waist.  Navy blue beading runs down the front fringing over the top of the pink.  More navy beads fall down the of the front.  The beading has an aurora coating that really makes them glisten. Three quarter sleeves with decorative horizontal darts near openings.  

This blouse is meant to be tucked in and was part of a set with a matching high waisted skirt since there are buttons along the bottom of the back and the bottom front edged is pinked rather than hemmed. Blouse is longer in the front than the back.  Back zipper side and side snaps. Light shoulder padding.
