Pure cotton antique corset cover makes a crisply cool summer top and looks wonderful paired with jeans or leather.

Embroidered eyelet braid is inserted at the waist and neckline and may be threaded with ribbon. There is a short peplum. Fine cotton lace in the style of bobbin lace trims the neckline. Closes at the front with shell buttons and ties with a peach silk ribbon at the neck.
Fits bust 91 cm (36")
Waist to 76 cm (30")
Shoulder to waist 40.5 cm (16")
Length 47 cm (18.5")
Very good. Clean and starched as it would have been worn back in the day. A few small and faint marks on the back, mends to one buttonhole and a pinprick sized hole in the front. A small piece of eyelet fabric has been added to the bottom centre front by a previous owner. You can easily remove this if you would prefer to have the original space. The silk ribbon is not original.
