1880's Lavender Bodice

From the seller:

Antique Victorian women's lavender silk bodice - VGC!

This antique Victorian bodice is a beautiful piece, in very good condition. It is fully lined with a striped polished cotton, which peeks through at the neckline and hem of the sleeves, where it is edged with a small braided cord. This bodice would be a wonderful addition to your collection, and could be worn by a very small woman.

CONDITION: Very good condition, with about 10 tiny pinholes.

It is probably a size extra small, and the measurements are approximately as follows:

Bust - 32"
Waist - 22"
Length - 21"

From Me:

This bodice is odd. Some of the styling hints at the 1870's, others at the very early 1890's....hence why I'm sticking it smack in the middle.
