1890's Brown Bodice

From the seller:

Victorian Brown Silk Bodice w Brocade / Silk Chiffon Sm .

This beautiful Victorian bodice is made from brown silk with a pretty brocade and the neck. The sleeves have emboirdered silk chiffon in rust that picks up the rust in the brocade, it's gathered around the wrists and peeks out from flaps that are around the bottom of the sleeves. It's lined with bones in the seams. BUst is 31 inches, waist is 22 inches, across the back shoulder is 10 inches and shoulder to center front bottom is 17 3/4 inches. Excellent condition.

From Me:

It looks like this was a sari or many a shawl in a former life.
