A Utility mark labelled blouse with three-quarter length sleeves, popper front fasteners beneath five false buttons, simulated belt and shoulder pads. The printed label states CC41 1051/2, the four-figure number denoting the material rayon (numbers 1000-1206) and the 2 indicating that the blouse was originally sold as part of a two piece set. Likely dating to 1942 onwards, it was factory made for sale in a shop, although the manufacturer's label is missing. The fabric is a multi-coloured print based on the traditional paisley design, the busy pattern could be easily joined together without matching up, reducing material wasteage. One of the shoulder pads has a completely different material patch on the underside. Size 44.
