This antique Edwardian corset cover (made circa 1914) features filet crochet yoke neckline, all crocheted by hand, complete with pink ribbon ties at the sleeves (which have a sort of hand-dyed, ombré feel), and pink crochet flower ties at the neckline (which I believe were  added at a later point). Below the neckline, the bodice is very full from gathering, creating that quintessential Edwardian "pigeon-breasted" shape, buttoning down the front and stopping at the natural waist. It has an original  drawstring tie at the waist, with a lot of flexibility in the waist measurement due to all the gathering. It's not always easy to find these antique corset covers in sizes that aren't tiny!

The Vintage Gingham Wrap Skirt and Vintage Block Print Pinafore Apron Dress pictured are also available

Measurements: The chest and waist measurements are very flexible due to gathering and adjustable drawstring, but note there is some stretch but less flexibility in the sleeves. With that in mind, this will likely fit an X-Small, Small, or Medium but please refer to below measurements to be sure.

Chest: flexible due to gathering; bottom of the crochet yoke at the upper bust measures 34" laid flat

Waist is adjustable due drawstring, shown cinched on a size 2, fully extended it measures up to 43"

Length: 14" from shoulder to front hem

Sleeve opening at cuff : 11" laid flat, up to 12.5" stretched

Great antique condition, with wear commensurate with age. Keep in mind this piece is well over 100 years old. The pink ribbon ties at the sleeves appear to almost be hand-dyed/ombré effect because of the uneven color; upon closer inspection, it appears it's from fading of the original color, but it genuinely looks intentional and adds to the unique antique charm of the piece. The ribbon could also be replaced easily. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
