Swiss Dot Victorian Blouse

From the seller:

fetching 1895 white dotted cotton blouse. There is a name tag on the hemline indicating it was original worn by Annette Young. The blouse has a high neck collar and full leg of mutton style sleeves. It is trimmed with inserts of Val lace. The blouse is unlined and has a back button closure. The close fitting sleeve cuffs have a button and loop closure. The blouse is in very good condition. It has not been cleaned so there is some minor age spotting. Bust 35 Waist 24 ½

From Me:

I almost want to say this is later because the sleeves don't go "up" and they are fuller at the bottom - which was popular into the early Edwardian era. However, this style was worn in the 1890's.
