Vintage 1910s Edwardian Ivory Cotton Blouse With Embroidered Lace
Gorgeous creamy ivory Edwardian blouse circa 1910s. Embroidered lace lace trim in a V pattern down both front and back. The lace is echoed at the sleeve cuffs. There is a tie that goes from the waist in front round back. Hook and eyes up the back. There is a V shaped modesty panel in the front and another in the back. No labels or tags. Looks and feels like a cotton linen. Probably a small. I'm very tall ( almost six foot) and big boned, so its coming up a bit higher at the neck in the photos then it would on a smaller woman.
Excellent vintage condition. Especially for its age. Very, VERY wearable. There are a couple pinhead sized holes, see photo. Also, one side of the back modesty panel is missing hooks and eyes. I thought about replacing them, but this would also be utterly adorable without that little V of fabric in the back for a bit more modern approach. So left the in case you just wanted to take it out altogether. It literally just unhooks from the blouse. The one in front though is sewn in. I also did see a couple small areas of seam that could do with a few stitches.
Measurements taken laid flat: Doubled at bust, and waist. Armpit to armpit across bust: 42" Approx. If you take out that back panel you'll have more flexibility here. Waist: 30" as is, but one could tie it tighter or move the hooks and eyes and get another inch or two. Shoulder to bottom: approx 1"
