A blouse is a loose-fitting upper garment that was formerly worn by workmen, peasants, artists, women and children. It is typically gathered at the waist so that it hangs loosely over the wearer's body. Today, the word most commonly refers to a woman's shirt but can also refer to a man's shirt if it is a loose-fitting style. Traditionally, the term has been used to refer to a shirt which blouses out or has an unmistakably feminine appearance. The term is also used for some men's military uniform jackets.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
blowz, n. a loose sack-like outer garment, somewhat like the English smock-frock. [Fr.]

I started scratching her face and everything and grabbed her blouse, and I held on real tight to her blouse and I wasn't going to let her go.
All of the dresses have certain verifiable characteristics, including, for example, a' secret pocket' on the right side of the pinafore skirt for Dorothy's handkerchief,' Judy Garland' written by hand in a script specific to a single person who labeled all of the extant dresses in the same hand. Apparently, the thin material of the blouse was prone to tearing when Judy Garland as Dorothy took it off after filming, and a seamstress often repaired it before Judy Garland as Dorothy donned it for the next shoot.
