“There’s a riot goin’ on!” The Rockabilly Queen collection would not be complete without some jailbird stripes! Wanda Jackson inspired this blouse with her cover of the song “Riot in Cell Block #9”. The Jailbird Blouse is a cropped striped pullover with a mock turtleneck and a drop shoulder for a true vintage silhouette. This 1950’s inspired piece is an essential part of every vintage gal’s wardrobe!

The “Jailbird Blouse” is part of my Rockabilly Queen Collection!

CONSTRUCTION

The Jailbird Blouse is knit seamlessly from the top down, with shoulder shaping and waist shaping.
