Gorgeous antique lawn blouse in lightweight cotton for summer. The base of the blouse is a semi sheer waffle/check. Delicate vertical eyelet & lace detailing at the front. Button down with sailor style collar finished with a delicate lace trim. Three quarter sleeve are also detailed with a fold-up lace trimmed cuff. Edwardian/Victorian peasant blouses are such a necessary staple for any wardrobe. Tuck it into a maxi skirt or keep it classic with some light wash denim & gold jewelry.
ERA / 1900s/1910s
BRAND / Handmade
MATERIAL / Cotton & lace
CONDITION / Great antique condition. There was 100+ year old masking tape on the inside of the collar with the person's name written. I have carefully removed and soaked the top, but there remains a bit of yellow where the tape was. Since this is on the inside of the collar it is not really noticeable when worn. In the last photo, please zoom in to see a small fray on the shoulder. This could be patched if desired (let me know if you'd like me to), but it quite minor. As with all antique /Edwardian/Victorian pieces, I've noted the major flaws but please understand these items are sold "as is".
MODERN FIT / Small to Large, please see measurements. This blouse is meant to be loose and boxy.
MEASUREMENTS / Bust - up to 40" / Width - 40" / Shoulders - 16" / Length - 21" / Sleeve Opening - 12"
Model is a size XS/S, 26/27" waist, 5'0".
