1890's Checked and Dotted Bodice

From the seller:

For your consideration a fabulous example of Victorian attire. This beautifully detailed Victorian blouse would make an awesome display or study piece, but because it is damaged, it is not suitable for wear. The fabric is very old and fragile and has several areas of age-appropriate damage, including many areas of shredding and tearing of the fabric as well as yellowing and a spot or two. Photos do not show each and every little rip and tear, but give a good example of the overall condition of the piece. I had this item displayed in my home and it was really a very nice decoration!

From Me:

This is most likely 1890's but may go into the early 1900's. For some reason, it reminds me of a school teacher's outfit!
