Edwardian White Bodice with Ribbons

From the seller:

Authentic 1890s Wedding Bodice

White dotted cotton net with ivory silk satin ribbon

Lined in white cotton

Open high neckpiece,( not sure how it was worn)

Faint spot on shawl collar, small sang, 3/8" hole and stain on sleeve

otherwise in wonderful condition

Small size, approximate measurements, 30" bust, 21"waist

From Me:

I think this would be an awesome contender for a recreation as part of the Historical Fortnightly White challenge. Just sayin'

It's an early 1900's (notice the pigeon front?)and looks like it would be quite comfortable in July given the nice net. :-)
