1830's Bodice







From the seller:

A rare and magnificent 1830’s cotton bodice. The bodice is all hand stitched. The bodice has huge gigot style sleeve. The front bust line has gathered pleating that is outlined with ruffles. The neck, armscyes and shoulders are piped. The inner seam on the sleeve and the sleeve cuffs are also piped. The sleeve cuffs have a hook and eye closure. The bodice is lined with linen and has a brass hook and eye back closure. The bodice is in excellent condition. There are no holes. A wonderful treasure for the serious collector of early garments. Bust 30 Waist 22.

From Me:

That front is...trying too hard. Sorry, I normally love anything before 1840 but....yeah.
