Wonderful Net Edwardian Shirt

From the seller:

Inventory no: Wbl.1121

Absolutely stunning ,rich creamy white edwardian top,blouse .

This blouse has a fuller pigeon chest which would give a lady

that perfect s-bend silhouette that was so popular in late 1800`s.

The front part of that look carried into the early 1900-05.

The top has very tight fitting sleeves with extra long cuffs

Two tiny mushroom buttons finish off a very romantic sleeve.

There are seven tiny mother of pearl buttons up the front.

The peplum part has three demential tiny flowers.

Original silk belt is gone,it was attached under two flowers

in the back.

This top was original worn with a silk camisole.

Could also be worn as jacket.


Material :Creamy white re-embroidered tulle

Label :None

Lined : No


Size : S-M

Waist : 36"

Bust :44"

Length : 19 1/2" in the back

Sleeves : 23"

Across back between shoulders : 14"

Arm pit opening :7 1/2"

Condition : Great

Absolutely in great condition. Totally wearable.

All I could find was a few bites,

largest around the right

side by the bust, would not be visible when

wearing a camisole and one by the back collar.

From Me:

Based on the collar and overall silhouette, I'm saying 1910's for this piece.
