1880's bodice

From the seller:

This is a lovely antique 1800's ladies heavy silk fully corseted jacket. This lovely piece of Victorian clothing features a most beautiful cut to velvet collar and cuffs in brown...this really pops against the steel gray jacket silk. Fully corseted inside which is lined in a soft brown polished cotton. Much sought after bustle back flap for your wire cage bustle. I do not have the entire skirt that went with the jacket, but please see my other auctions for the two heavily beaded fringe skirt sides...these can be used with the jacket. in way once you repurpose. The front of the jacket buttons with steel cut early shank buttons. This gorgeous Victorian dress jacket is in excellent condition and can easily be worn. The following flaws are noted: missing 2 upper buttons and one needs to be rewen on...I will send along...that's it! The cut silk velvet collar and cuffs are ever so soft. This is an amazing 1800's corset jacket well worth a peek. was most likely worn with a lace bodice insert of some kind...these are easily found on ebay ...or you can simply wear it over a blouse. This elegant piece measures as follows:
Bust: 30 inches
Waist: 24 inches
Underarm to hemline: 11 inches
Underarm to sleeve end: 15 inches
For serious Victorian clothing collectors and dealers of the nothing but the finest in 1800's clothing!
