Early 1900's Spring Blouse/Bodice

From the seller:

Victorian Pink Flowered Silk Taffeta Bodice SM

This lovely Victorian bodice is made from a pink and green silk taffeta with a woven ivory stripe in it. The stripes look like they were cut out to trim the yoke and sleeves with black velvet ribbon on the edges. It has a high collar and pretty sleeves that flare out at the bottom and are gathered to narrow cuffs. It has a few small tears, a 1/4 inch one on the upper sleeve and a few other small ones where the stripe is woven to the taffeta, it also has a patch made from the same fabric in between 2 of the velvet ribbons. IT's lined and has bones in the seams. 34 inches around the bust, waist is 23 1/2, across the back shoulder is 12 1/4 and it's 17 1/2 inches long from the shoulder to bottom of the center front point. Very good vintage condition.

From Me:

I <3 this bodice so much! It would look fabulous with a long black skirt. Based on the sleeve shape, 1902-1904.
