History Deceptively simple working blouse as always worn by Elizabeth Peacock. She had this designed by a French cutter to give maximum freedom of movement and minimum waste of cloth. It was cut from only one and two thirds of a yard of 36 inch width cloth with very little waste. Designed to be cut with the weft lengthwise down the blouse. This cloth is typical of much that was commissioned and also worn by the family.
