About this object

Square shaped blouse of red cotton. The top edge is encased with elastic to create an off-the-shoulder neckline. A decorative insert into the top portion of the blouse has been created by a band of teal, yellow, blue with a geometric pattern of black, white, and red designed and made in typical traditional Seminole Indian style of Palm Beach, FL. The blouse is further decorated with thin cotton trim applied above and below the insets. Small puff sleeves are created by elastic encased at the bottom edge of the sleeve.
