Teen's Era Summer Blouse
From the seller:
Absolutely stunning ,rich creamy white edwardian top,blouse .
This blouse has a fuller pigeon chest which would give a lady
that perfect s-bend silhouette that was so popular in late 1800`s.
The front part of that look carried into the early 1900-05.
The top has very tight fitting sleeves with extra long cuffs
Two tiny mushroom buttons finish off a very romantic sleeve.
There are seven tiny mother of pearl buttons up the front.
The peplum part has three demential tiny flowers.
Original silk belt is gone,it was attached under two flowers
in the back.
This top was original worn with a silk camisole.
Could also be worn as jacket.
Material :Creamy white re-embroidered tulle
Lined : No
Size : S-M
Waist : 36"
Length : 19 1/2" in the back
Sleeves : 23"
Across back between shoulders : 14"
Arm pit opening :7 1/2"
Condition : Great
Absolutely in great condition. Totally wearable.
All I could find was a few bites,
largest around the right
side by the bust, would not be visible when
wearing a camisole and one by the back collar.
I don't even want to think of the rips and tears this would have if anyone actually tried to wear this. This netting is probably silk or rayon and this stuff rips if you look at it funny. Seriously.
Definitely about 1916/1917.
