♛Vintage ca. 1970s US Marine Corps uniform blouse is a great way to recycle wonderful, wearable history. These military surplus beauties were tucked away for around 40 years, waiting for their next life.

Pale misty green-grey, they make an excellent unusual neutral hue. The fabric is a cotton blend, soft but also perfectly machine-washable and dryer-friendly, while resisting wrinkles.

Matching buttons, single patch breast pocket, and beautifully tucked and tapered, flattering fit. Single-stitch construction, serged hems that were meant to be tucked into blouses or slacks, and the kind of quality you just don't find in modern button-up blouses.

Made in the US for military uniform use, they feature their old-school sizing tags; some even have original owner's name tag still attached. Some have tags identifying manufacturer, as well.

Blouse shown is an example, but all are the same style.

♛Measurements

Choose your best size from the drop-down menu! These are measurements of the blouses themselves; please allow room ease of movement and the kind of fit you desire. Remember that with button-front blouses you usually size UP a bit and allow room, so they fit properly and don't pull/gap across buttons!

♛Condition

Very good vintage condition, sturdy.

Most, if not all of these, were worn and have had a previous life and adventures in the military some 40 years ago. Sometimes they even come with the name tag of their original owner inside. :) On rare occasions a tiny or unnoticeable blemish may be found. 

They have been bulk-laundered and lightly pressed. These machine-wash and dry fine!
