Vintage Victorian Edwardian Blouse In White With Lace Ruffle Front
Gorgeous white Edwardian or possibly Victorian blouse circa late 1800s/ early 1900s. Absolutely charming crochet lace trim. And that ruffle front! No labels or tags.
Good vintage condition. There are three snaps holding it together in the front. Each set of snaps is missing one half, so you'd need to replace those. Or add hooks and eyes. I dont think these were original as they seem a it newer, so I've left them as is in case you wnat to replace them with something else. As shown in the photos there are some small holes, noting over a dime size. Most are pea sized or smaller. There is a bit of woven ribbon or something through the waistband of this. It does not appear to be elastic, but it has a bit of give to it. It is pulling out in some spots, and I suspect was added later, maybe when the snaps were added. I'd just pull it out, I think. Otherwise, this is pretty good. Would be lovely for display or as a pattern, or perhaps upcycling project. The lace ruffle and trim itself is in excellent shape so that alone makes this worth a look.
Measurements taken laid flat: Doubled at bust, and waist. This was so hard to measure, so I've measured it across the back from side seams to side seams and doubled those, so there may be some flexibility here. Armpit to armpit across bust: 39" Waist: 38" Shoulder to bottom: approx 13""
