Edwardian Bodice

From the seller:

Blue White Striped Antique Victorian Long Sleeve Jacket!

This is a beautiful antique jacket. It is blue and white and has a striped pattern. It is long sleeve and was made to button at the neck, but is missing the button. This has some lace trim and ties at the waist. Although I can't date this piece specifically, it does appear to be from the Victorian era of the late 1800's.

It measures 16" long and has a chest of about 32". The sleeves measure 23" long.

This is actually in pretty good conditions still. It is a little yellowed and there are some spots here and there. Although the material is quite thin, I don't see any holes

From Me:

This is a lovely late Edwardian waist or blouse. I wish there were more pictures but the seller posted only two -both of the front of the bodice.
