This adorable bodice has very cute pink tissue silk decoration at the collar, front, and cuffs. Circa late 1890s to early 1900s.

There is a little hidden pocket beneath the front closures which I assume for a pocket watch!

Hooks and eye closures down the middle front and there are extra closures on the outer bodice panel starting at the shoulder.

+++ Measurements +++

Extra small, shown on a size 2 dress form without the inner bodice fully closed for reference.

32" bust

24" waist

18" total length

Wearable with extra care, but beware of the exposed steel boning which would likely need to be fixed or removed for safety.

+++ Condition +++

Overall good condition with some flaws of note:

  • A few small holes in the pink tissue silk
  • Discoloration in both armpits in the lining (not visible from the outside)
  • Exposed steel boning in the bodice
  • Cotton lining is torn down one side
  • Missing the bottom eye closure
