This copper colored silk taffeta bodice is the transitional bodice between the 1860s and 1870s. The sleeves are missing. The bodice fastens up the front with eight 5/8” Dorset functional buttons. Has a 5/8” stand-up collar. 1 ¾” self-fabric trim with silk satin lining that is bound to the edges to form a decorative trim. Camel color polished cotton lining. Stays noted in front inner band only. The inner band is secured with hook and eyes. The center back is 1”. There is a copper colored wool 5/8” tape present (as seen in the photo) but I have no idea what it is for. This bodice does not even fit onto my smallest dress form. Excellent condition even though sleeves are missing.
