Description:
According to the New York Times in a 1923 article, "There is nothing Miss Cashin cannot do with leather ("Cashin Makes Deft Use of Leather,"1923)." This philosophy is apparent in this tailored blouse made of a two dyed leathers and tartan plaid of tan, white, and navy. "[Tartan plaid] consists of vertical and horizontal or diagonal stripes that cross each other to form different sized checks" (Lee, Christina. "A Shirt Style Guide," 2009). The blouse design is unusual with button closures on the center back of the garment, rather than the front. The front is darted with princess seams, creating a slight flare at the bottom to allow movement. The three quarter sleeves are finished with large rolled leather cuffs. The cuffs and the collar are both white dyed leather, with a navy dyed leather binding. (CAM#133)
