Edwardian Titanic Era Summer Blouse

From the seller:

Greetings and welcome to our auction.

I attended an auction held by a local museum and purchased several vintage pieces. They were selling off excess items to raise funds for an expansion project. So this has been carefully displayed and stored for many years.

This blouse dates back to the turn of the century. I think this may have been part of an empire waisted dress. The skirt has been removed and so just the top part of the dress is available.

It features:

* A small lace collar

* Made of cotton that is embroidered and lace

* Two snaps on the back with part of one snap missing as shown in the 6th photo

* Belled sleeves with delicate lace

MEASUREMENTS for TOP: All measurements were taken when article of clothing was laying flat on table.

BUST: (measured from under the arms) 17"


WAIST: 18"

LENGTH OF ARMS: (measured from under the arms to bottom of sleeve) 8 1/4"

LENGTH from back of neck to bottom of blouse: 12"


The blouse appears to be in pretty nice, gently used vintage condition. In the last photo I tried to show you a small area with a small hole and pin prick sized spot. In the 8th photo I tried to show you some discoloration on the sleeve. There are a few areas where it has come apart at the seams.

There is some slight discoloration as associated with age and I see a few other small spots on the back and along the edge in front.

All in all it a pretty nice item.

I hope to have hit the high points, please let me know if you have any questions.

Even though I have disclosed the flaws in this please note that I am selling this in "As is" condition. I think I've found the areas of concern but there may be a few that I have overlooked.

Please LOOK at our other listings. I will be listing some additional Victorian era items tonight.

I will always combine shipping.

Thanks for looking and have fun ebaying.

From Me:

I'm sure if this was cleaned, it would looks fabulous. The style of the blouse places it in the early teens era.
