1890's Pink Wool and Striped Silk Bodice

From the seller:

This Victorian bodice is made from pink wool and a silk with a velvet pin stripe. It has some minor damage at the back of the neck and across the shoulders, there's a tear on the front under the lapel a tear under the arm, and tears on one shoulder. The pink has some holes on the wool on the down the front between the lapels, lining is shot, wear on top edge of collar and spots mostly on the sleeve and a few other scattered. It measures 24 inches around the waist, bust is 34 inches, across the back shoulder is 11 and it's 21 inches long from shoulder to bottom of the peplum. AS IS as is

From Me:
You know, I realized I had a lot more than I thought of this cream and grey stripy silk that I was going to make an 18th C Jacket out of. I think I've just seen what I can use the rest to make. ;-)

  1. I love 1890s double lapels.So over the top, and yet it works.
