Vintage 70s Off White Secretary Shirt Blouse S M Pleated Ascot Cravat Victorian



Size: Tagged a vintage size Medium.  Fits more like a modern size Small.  See measurements below.

Brand:  Leslie Ann Fashions

Era: 1970s

Material: Polyester

Color:  Off White

Sleeve style:  Long sleeve

Closures: Single button at the back of the neck




This is a lovely vintage secretary blouse from the 1970s made by Leslie Ann Fashions, and it has a bit of a Victorian flair to it.  The material is a lightweight, non-stretch polyester that is off white in color.  The blouse has long sleeves with elastic and little ruffled bells at the ends.  It has a high ruffled collar, and there is a pleated piece of material that hangs down like a cravat or ascot.  The shirt closes with a single button at the back of the neck.

Please note that the listing is for the shirt alone.  The skirt is for display purposes only.

The tag labels this a size Medium, but vintage sizes tend to run small.  I think this blouse may be closer to a modern size Small.  The actual measurements are as follows:

Bust: 19" across, underarm to underarm (38" around)
Shoulders: 14" across, seam to seam
Length: 22" down the center of the back

Note: These are the actual measurements of the garment, so please leave yourself room for comfort of movement. All measurements were taken with the item laying flat.  The flat measurements were doubled where appropriate to give an approximate measurement around.

Condition: This item is in EXCELLENT condition for its age with no flaws to note.

Please feel free to ask any questions about this item before bidding. I also have many other items listed, so check out MY OTHER AUCTIONS! I am happy to combine shipping if you win multiple items!

Thanks for looking!



I accept payment through Paypal, and payment must be made within 4 days of purchase. If you need longer than that, please contact me before you make your purchase.  Thanks! :-)

I go to the post office every week day, Monday - Friday.  I typically ship items out one business day after I've received payment, so if I receive payment on Friday, your item will go in the mail Monday (although if I receive payment early enough, I might get it in the mail the same day).  If you pay with an e-check, I will wait for the payment to clear before shipping your item.  I may occasionally take a few extra days to ship an item if I am out of town, especially if it is around a major holiday.  If you need an item to be shipped right away, just let me know and I will do my best to get it out to you as soon as possible!  I do offer Express Mail shipping for most of my items for those of you who need rush shipping. :-)


Items sent First Class are shipped in a heavy duty polyvinyl mailer.  Items sent Priority Mail are sent in either a tyvek mailer or a box depending on the size of the item.  You may always request that an item be shipped in a box, but the shipping cost may go up slightly.

I am also happy to offer a combined shipping discount if you purchase more than one item.  If you buy more than one item, I will send you an adjusted invoice with the new shipping price.   Items must be paid for at the same time to be eligible for a shipping discount.  I include Delivery Confirmation for free on all US orders.

PLEASE NOTE: I will ship your item to the address listed on the Paypal payment, so please make sure that your address is up-to-date!  If you need me to ship to an address other than the one listed, please make a note of it when you pay.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I am happy to ship internationally, but please note that as the buyer, you are responsible for any taxes or duties your customs office might charge on packages coming from the USA.  Customs fees are not included in the cost of shipping.  ALSO NOTE:  While First Class Mail International is the cheaper shipping option, it is also less reliable.  I?ve had some customers get their packages in around a week, and for others, it has taken a month.  If you need a package by a certain date, I?d highly recommend Priority Mail International.  I can also ship via Express Mail International upon request.  Tracking is NOT available for First Class Mail International.  If you would like a TRACKING NUMBER for your package, you MUST select Priority Mail International or Express Mail International as your shipping option.


I know that purchasing clothing online can be risky, and I want all of my customers to have a great experience in my store.  If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me about making a return.  If you decide to return an item, please mail it back to me no later than 14 days after you receive it.  It must be returned in the exact condition you received it.  If the item had tags, they must still be attached. 


All returns will be subject to a 15% restocking fee.  Shipping and Handling charges are non-refundable.


Clothing Condition:

The large majority of the items in my store are vintage, and therefore pre-owned.  I do my best to only put items up for sale that are in very good to excellent vintage condition, and I will list any major flaws that I notice.  However, most vintage clothing has been around for several decades or more, and it may have some minor snags in the fabric, the occasional loose thread or other minimal signs of wear.  Vintage items may also have raw seams that have not been serged.  By purchasing, you are accepting that these items are used and may not be 100% perfect. However, if you feel I have overlooked a major flaw, please let me know! 


I personally have a SMOKE FREE AND PET FREE HOME.  I won't sell a piece of clothing if I notice a smoke smell on it from a previous owner.  I have no way of knowing if the original owner of the clothing had pets, but I will use a lint roller to remove any fuzz or stray hair I notice.  Because most of what I sell is vintage, an item may have been in storage for quite a few years, so I always recommend you wash or dry clean your item before wearing it.




I value my customers and want them to have a positive experience in my store, so I leave positive feedback shortly after I've received payment.   If for some reason you have a problem, please CONTACT ME before leaving negative or neutral feedback, and I will do my best to help you with your concerns!
