Description

This one is obviously a stunnerbut it is in excellent condition, sturdy & totally wearableAND in an even rarer wearable SIZE!! The blouse dates to the first decade of the 20th Century (I am an academic costume historian). There is an outside chance that this could even date to the1890s, given the fullness of the sleeves, but I can safely say Edwardianpossibly older. The sacque is made of a medium weight cottoncrisp & flawless. The yoke front on the upper bodice closes with two buttons, & there is a 1.25″ wide scalloped eyelet ruffle at the neckline & at the button closure. Below the yoke, both front & back, the lower bodice is generously gathered in a smock-like effect. The full leg-o-mutton sleeves are gathered at the armscye & narrow towards the banded cuff, which is also trimmed with an eyelet ruffle. The most outstanding feature of this bedjacket is its AMAZING conditionthere are NO Issues. Clean, crisp, sturdy & FLAWLESS-this is as good as it gets with a blouse of this period! It measures: Bust: 40″ (these tops were meant to be quite fullThis is the measurement of the upper bust seam.) Across shoulder: 14″ Sleeve length: approx. 25″ neck to waist in Back: 26″ Vintage Pristine Edwardian Victorian Blouse Bedjacket Saque Cotton With Eyelet Trim Steampunk Wearable Size
