Blouse, 1930

Georgia O'Keeffe

Attributed to Georgia O'Keeffe Blouse circa 1930s O’Keeffe used more decorative stitching than usual in this blouse. The bibbed front is framed with a small ruffle and decorated with tiny pintucks in a diagonal grid pattern. The panels on the front and sleeves were then edged with rows of open stitches, an embroidery technique often used in lacemaking. This lightened up the sleeves and allowed her skin tone to show through. The collar has ties to make a bow, a frequent feature in her blouses and dresses. (
