Accession number 2009.27
Catalog Number 2009.27.1
Object Name Shirt
Description Black short sleeved blouse, which is part of an outfit together with 2009.27.2, a black skirt with patchwork. The bodice of the black blouse is made from a modern synthetic material (rayon?) with puffed sleeves made from four tiered layers of black toule. The cloth tag in the back of the shirt collar has the image of a shell and reads "Sanibelles." There are two sewn darts running down the front and back of the shirt to make it form fitting.

There are two prize ribbons hooked onto the front of the blouse. The black and white checkered ribbon is for first place in Fashions by Floridians. The paperwork on the back of the ribbon is not filled out, but the sitcker identifies it as being from Fred's Trophy World. The red ribbon is for second place in the Florida State Fair Fashion Show. The paperwork on the back of the red ribbon reads, "Tampa, 2/17/90, Prof. -, Evening Wear."
