Edwardian Striped Outfit with Lace Insert

From the seller:

This is a black and white fine cotton striped skirt and blouse. The blouse has a “T” design in front with off white crochet lace and a black velvet trim. It has a high collar which has a repairable hole with some find needlework, in the front crochet and similar hole at back near hook closure. This blouse is in good condition except for above mentioned and some shredding on the inside silk lining behind the front crochet lace. The blouse as a whole is still very pretty and it matches skirt.

The skirt which is also in good condition. It does have a hole in back (see last photo) which is hardly noticeable. It has double hooks at back waist, a small train with some room for a small bustle perhaps. The waist band is solid and there are six back hooks. The hem and dress as a whole appears to be machine sewn with early chain stitch. There are two black bands of velvet across the middle of the skirt and this elegantly matches the black velvet trims of the blouse. This dress is delicate because of its age but could be displayed nicely or worn at owners discretion.

Shoulders 12", Waist 16.5 ", Length 19 ", Across front under arms 20 ". Skirt: Shoulders 14", Length 36".


From Me:

It was far too dark to post anything yesterday. Today, I chose a more somber outfit.

The blouse should be tucked in but this is an Edwardian skirt and blouse. There would not have been a bustle.
