Black Edwardian Shirtwaist and matching Skirt

From the seller:

Up for auction is an amazing Victorian 2 piece dress. Dress is made of black cotton. The dress has great details indicative of the period.

Condition: The dress has fading throughout. It has small holes / pulls throughout. I only saw the holes/pulls when I took the two pieces and opened them up in front of a widow.

Size: The Top is a Small - Large

Bust: 40"

Length of top 18 1/2"

Length of sleeves 22"

Waist 42"

Skirt: XS-S

Waist 25"

Hips, free

Length of skirt 38"

From Me:

The problem with black is that the details don't often show up well on camera. Luckily, this seller took a lot of photos! It's not Victorian, but a nice Edwardian outfit. The pintucks on the blouse and the skirt are typical of the Edwardian period.
