1890's Green Bodice

From the seller:

Wonderful Antique Victorian Jacket, appears to be Victorian or Edwardian. It is lined with a corset type bodice with stays, one hook and five buttons. The jacket is trimmed in luxurious black lace measuring 4" wide and 32" long. Lovely fabric, but unsure exactly what it is.

The jacket is in Good Vintage Condition. The inside lining has come apart along one seam near the buttons, the back of one sleeve has been repaired in two spots as shown in the photo, plus another spot at the top of the other sleeve and there is a small tear on the back which has been repaired. The lace has a couple of tears and there are a few pin holes in the jacket fabric. The jacket is over 100 years old and wear is to be expected. Please see photos and contact seller if you have any questions. More photos available.

Measurements taken with the garment laid flat.

Waist: approx. 14"

Bust: approx. 32" - 33"

Length from top of neck to hem approx. 17"

Sleeves measure approx. 26"
