Dulcie's Blouse w/ Lace
"Excuse me, lass: Aren't you the princess disguised as a wench?"
Of course, any woman will look like a princess in our flattering blouses, but the matching lace at neck and wrist of this Dulcie is a dead giveaway to your true identity: Renaissance royal, Pirate queen, Medieval mademoiselle or Steam Punk siren. (This style also looks great with jeans or a peasant skirt--just sayin'.)
Hip length, to stay comfortably tucked in. 3/4 length sleeves. Soft cotton elastic for comfort. Neckline is wide enough to wear off the shoulder.
Cleaning instructions: Drop into well. If the frog who retrieves it demands a kiss for his trouble, be sure to get a prenuptial agreement first. After all, you are a princess.
One size fits most.
Broadcloth: Cotton/polyester blend, shirtweight. Does not wrinkle, shrink or fade. Permanent press (warm wash, tumble dry low heat, remove promptly). Black, red, burgundy, navy, hunter, brown.
Brocade: Cotton plus various synthetic fibers, with same-color woven patterns, which will vary. Sturdy weight. Dry clean. Blue, hunter, burgundy.
Canvas: Also called Duck Cloth. Stout cotton fabric with a coarse weave. Black, white, red, brown, or hunter green. Will fade like jeans. Cold wash, tumble dry low heat or line dry.
Fleece: Synthetic with velour-like drape; popular for outerwear. Good, practical substitute for wool. Black, burgundy, hunter green. Check for color availability before ordering; can vary with season. Washable, but dry cleaning is recommended to preserve the shape of capes.
Muslin: Garment-quality, 100% cotton (not coarse utility muslin). Cold wash, line dry recommended. White or natural.

Suede Cloth: A heavy, woven suede-like cloth of 100% polyester. Dry cleaning recommended.
Wool: A natural fiber from sheep; wool blends include man-made fibers of various kinds. Holds colors well. Dry cleaning is recommended, but may be hand washed in cold water and dried flat. Do not wring. Never use hot water or a dryer. For seasonal storage, clean first and use the moth repellent of your choice.
