Edwardian Dressing (?) Jacket
From the seller:
A glorious 1890’s yellow and white stripe silk bodice that has been de-accessioned from a museum collection. The cataloging tag is pinned inside the neckline. The white stripe is decorated with pink roses. The bodice has full leg of mutton styled sleeves. The sleeves have a wide lace flounce. The neck and front opening are decorated with cascading lace trim. The bodice is also trimmed with black velvet ribbon bows. The inside is lined with cotton. The bodice has a front hook and eye closure. The bodice is in very good display condition. There is 1 dime size age spot and a few tiny splits in the fabric but nothing major. Bust 36 Waist 28.
I love the fabric but I'm not fond of the cut of this jacket. The 3/4 balloon sleeves put it smack daub in the Edwardian era.
