Early 1870's Bodice

From the seller:

This Auction is for A Victorian Era Ladies Waist Coat.

After measuring I would say this coat would fit a size 6 , but please check size chart to be sure. Fabric is a type of satin jacquard. The fabric itself is still strong and is not shattering. Color is a deep purple/eggplant. This coat is the real deal pre-dates 1900. It is missing buttons and will need some minor TLC / mending, but I feel it could be worn again. Front is missing 3 buttons that could be taken from sleeve cuffs.


Bust: 32 inches

Waist: 24 inches

Sleeves: 18 inches

Back Neckline to Hem: 23 inches

Underarm to End of Tails: 35 inches

Any questions just ask.

From Me:
The seller took a bunch of the photos of the front of the dress and only one of the back. However, it looks like it might support a small bustle so this is either late 1860's or early 1870's.
