❤❤NOT A PIECE OF CLOTHING - A PIECE OF FASHION HISTORY!
AUTHENTIC VICTORIAN ERA blouse from the late 1800s. In pure FLORAL SILK (RARE NOW), this is the standard Leg O Mutton top with bib front and hook eye closures. SIMPLY AMAZING.
******LOVE the antique velvet piping around the edges!!!!
Very Good condition for its age, there is a patch of Silk at the shoulder that is shredding, commensurate with age. You could ideally repair/patch this by a professional, tighten the seams on the inside boning and wear this. I put it on and it IS pretty durable. However, I would recommend using this for study/display as not to damage it further. IT IS AMAZING AND SHOULD BE DISPLAYED PROUDLY IN YOUR COLLECTION!
17" long, up to 32" bust/waist, 21" sleeve, 16" across shoulders. (size XS).
