Antique Victorian clothing is rare enough to come by, and this blouse is such a special collector's item. Circa 1890s, it's made of the most beautiful printed silk, with solid purple silk details, and crochet lace details at the chest and cuffs— note the overturned pleating details at the cuffs as well! The interior has intricate boning, with the front panel hooking closed on the left side.

Measurements: This will fit a modern size X-Small or possibly Small. Note that the boning of the interior is a tiny size (they used corsetry to make their waist teeny tiny...) but it can be worn with the outer closure in tact, without necessarily doing up the interior corsetry. The below measurements are without the interior corset engaged.
Chest: 33" laid flat
Waist: up to 25"
Length: 17.5" from shoulder to hem

Good antique condition, considering it's about 130 years old; it's nearly impossible to find clothing from this era in even remotely wearable condition. There is some minor discoloration in places, which is mostly blends into the purple color/is disguised by the pattern, as well as some minor pinholes. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
