Brown 1890's Bodice

From the seller:

This gorgeous victorian bodice is in a hard to find extra large size. It features a vee in front and back waistline, a detachable collar, leg-o-mutton sleeves and bead trim. It is a very dark brown, almost an espresso color, but I have tried to lighten the photos to bring out the details. The outer garment has no holes or tears that I could see. The lining has a few tears and there is underarm staining on both sleeves. It is fully boned. Two of the bones need to be re-sewn into place. I will leave that up to the buyer. Very wearable, the fabric seems strong. Would benefit from a professional cleaning. Approx measurements are:

B = 44

W = 36"

Shoulder to shoulder across back = 15-1/2

Centerback neck to waist = 15"

Centerback neck to point of hem = 20"

Sleeve length = 25"

From Me:

Wow! Plus sized!
