Description

Very lovely antique fine cotton corset cover with lovely hand-embroidered detail throughout, and Valenciennes beading lace detail. The main floral / botanical embroidery motifs on both sides at the front are three-dimensional. There is additional hand-embroidered detail all around the collar / neck opening, arm openings, and down center front. Inside, notice the beautiful detailing on the side seams. Closes with three sets of snaps and a hook-and-eye closure at the bottom. The wide neck opening is adorned with beading-style Valenciennes lace, for threading a pretty ribbon through. There appears to be early elastic sewn into the bottom band; it has lost most of its elasticity and would likely need to be replaced if the piece is to be worn. The elastic also seems to have caused some discoloration along the bottom edge. Besides this slight discoloration, the only other wear/damage to note are two small tears close to center back (see last photo), and two pin-hole sized spots near one of the snaps at the front. No other issues noted.

The measurements are as follows -- across the back, from seam to seam, at the level of the bottom of the arm openings, it is 16.75". Across the back, seam to seam, at (high) waist level, it is 14.25". At the front, across the bust, from seam to seam, it is approximately 25" (with snaps closed). Across the front, at waist level, it is about 18.5". Thus, the bust circumference is approximately 41"+, and the waist - 32". The arm openings are 17.5" in circumference. From shoulder seam to the bottom of the waistband, it is 14" long. The corset cover is modeled in the photos on my size 8 / Medium contemporary dress form (36" bust, 25" waist). As you can see, the corset cover is extremely large for the dress form in the bust area, and a little large at the waist.
