vintage 1940s top worn in a modern way

This vintage find is one of my absolute favorites—but you’ve probably heard me say that plenty of times before! It’s a classic 1940s rayon top. I say, “classic” because it buttons up at the back, which is typical of tops and blouses from that era.

At first, I really thought it’d be a chore to put this top on, but it’s actually a lot easier than I had initially imagined. Having said that, I did need a bit of limberness to fasten it, just a little bit though—this modern vintage girl can manage dressing herself, thank you very much!
