Lovely dark green and black embroidered shirt-waist circa 1900s.
I believe it is a wool silk blend, but I'm not entirely certain. It is soft and has a bit of stretch.
Wide half sleeves with lace trim, which is echoed at the collar. Hook and eye closures down the center back.
I had a difficult time capturing the color of this piece, and the photos really don't do her justice.
+++ Measurements +++
Likely best for a size medium-large. This style was meant to be worn slightly loose in the bust.
14.25" between shoulder seams, measured across the back
18" back length
21" front length
+++ Condition +++
Lovely condition overall with a couple of minor flaws to note:
- Faded spot on one side close to underarm, mostly hidden
- A bit of rust on a couple of the hooks
Wearable with care. Clean and free of strong odors. Hand wash and air dry or steam clean recommended.
