Sack coats were made into the millions during the war, the majority being made by private contractors. These contract blouses exhibit a wide range of sewing skill, from the relatively well-constructed JT Martin blouses, to other hastily-made coats that have wobbly stitching and sometime strange piecing in the facings,
This is the ultimate in war-time, mass produced utilitarian garments. Our unlined contract blouse is entirely machine sewn, including the felling on all seams, except for buttonholes and buttons. If you're looking for a good, comfortable unlined blouse that represents this hasty construction technique used during the war, look no further than our Unlined Contract Blouse!
To ensure a proper fit, we request that you get accurate measurements using a tape measure or the strip of cloth and yardstick method detail on the FAQ page. Without an accurate measurement, we cannot ensure that your garment will fit they way it is intended to.
If you are taller than 5'9", please let us know that you will need a longer length jacket.
For sizes larger than 48, there is an additional $10 added to the item.
