This gorgeous skirt and bodice are French and date from the late 1800's. I simply ADORE this set.It desperately needs to be cleaned, however it's stunning! The closeup photographs show the level of storage marks and the photograph of the pieces against the door shows the construction. Made of a light batiste cotton or perhaps it is a lawn? It's a gorgeous light weave, loosely woven, light weight!
The pink silk ribbon is GORGEOUS! So delicate but other than the storage marks, has survived in remarkable condition.
An absolute treasure MEASUREMENTS : The bodice measures approximately : Waist : 30 inches Length : 20 inches Chest : from one underarm to the other, laid flat : 20.5 inches Shoulders :18 inches Skirt : 43 inches at the shortest and 50 inches long at the longest point 23 inches waist CONDITION : This textile is in as found, not freshly laundered condition. This textile needs to be cleaned. This set is in wonderful condition but has storage marks. There are storage marks and there are some hand mends on the skirt and blouse (please see photographs), so neatly worked they are difficult to even find!This item is in the category "Clothing, Shoes & Accessories\Women\Women's Clothing\Dresses".
