Edwardian Shirtwaist with Black Lace

From the seller:

I purchased this wonderful blouse at an antique store while visiting relatives in Tennessee. It caught my eye - I love the details.
• Pintucked throughout
• Very sheer cotton ecru/off-white – which has yellowed
• Black lace
•High neck lace collar with hook and eye closures
• Fabric covered tiny buttons down the back
•Approximate measurements: shoulder to shoulder, 9-1/4”; sleeves, 11”; neck back to bottom of waist, 17”; waist width, 10-1/2”.

From Me:

Edwardian. You can tell from the pigeon front at the waist and the way the cuff is gathered - more gathers creating a small puff to one side versus the other.
