Antique Corset Cover, Blouse, With Lace Inserts - Bust 91-96 cm
Antique cotton corset cover makes a delightfully feminine and cool summer top.
The top has pin tucks at front and back and two strips of cotton lace inserted into the front. The neckline and armholes are trimmed with cotton lace. The neckline is drawn up by a narrow blue silk ribbon. It has hooks and eyes at the front to close, covered by a placket. The back is gathered into a waistband at centre back, extending into narrow ties to tie at the front. It's longer at the front to allow for the bust. Late 1890s- early 1900s.
Fits bust 91-96 cm
Waist to 86 cm (34"), maybe a little more
Length from shoulder at the front 48 cm (19")
Length at centre front 55 cm (21.75") allows for bust
Length from shoulder at the back 40 cm (15.75")
Very good. There is a small patch at the back armhole and a small hole in the armhole lace as shown.
