Turn of the Century Autumn Colored Bodice

From the seller:

Antique womans blouse
Used to be VERY fancy
Main body is fitted, has stiff fingers or ribs
Small lace vest is attached and is part of the main body and on the front only
tiny ruffles poke out of the sleeve, sleeve is about 16." at cuff +/-
It must have been gorgeous
Thought someone would like to use the design?

No returns

From Me:

1899 Fashion Plate

And the seller gave us...nothing! I doubt the sleeve is 16" at the cuff. 0_o?

The "wings" at the top of the sleeve, the lack of a puff at the top of the sleeve, the sleeves appear to be full length, and the gathered front are all typical of the late 1890's/early 1900's. I particularly like the colors - blues, pumpkin, grape, and the natural color of the lace blend together nicely.
