Edwardian Bodice

From the seller:

A gorgeous civil war silk brown pretty lace very rare gorgeous dressy look only slight deterioration on trim by neck doesn't show when on display ! Real tiny bust 30" waist is 20" length is 18"
Display piece
For a
Museum !

From Me:

On what planet is this for the Civil War? Seriously, sellers, a little research, please?

I think this is for a young miss, and towards the start of the 1900's. The sleeves are puffy but they don't go up as you would expect with the 1890's. Instead, they are meant to hang down, more like what we see in the early 20th century. The higher in the back waist line is also common for around 1903/1904 ish.
