Lovely black lace shirt-waist circa 1900s, lined with black tissue silk.
Buttons down the center back. Large balloon sleeves and gathered waist with small "pooch" that blouses out in the front.
+++ Measurements +++
17" back length
18" front length
16" between shoulder seams
+++ Condition +++
Good condition overall for its age, with a few small repairs to the lace, mainly around the collar, not very noticeable. I did see a couple of places where the lace looks like it is separating slightly in the front.
The lining is mostly good but has some larger tears in the underarms.
The lace is somewhat dry and fragile. I would only recommend wearing this for a special occasion or photoshoot, and it must be handled with care.
Likely best as a study piece or for display.
