Antique Victorian blouse. This antique blouse from the Victorian era is one of the most beautiful blouses of its kind that I have ever seen; it is absolute poetry! Done in sheer creamy white cotton, it is just bursting with hand crocheted lace, hand done embroidery, and teeny tiny pintucks. Fastens up the back with the most darling mother of pearl buttons -- due to their being handmade, each one is slightly different! -- and hidden hooks. This blouse will look outstanding paired with both skirts and slender jeans, and is perfect to wear on its own, or layered beneath a jacket or blazer. An absolutely stunning wardrobe staple!

This blouse was handmade over 110 years ago -- it is truly a treasure, and very rare! There is not another one quite like it in all the world!!

♥ details + measurements

please note: although the bust and waist measurements suggest that this blouse would fit a small or medium, the measurement around the upper arm of the sleeves is very, very snug, which means that this blouse is meant to fit an xxs or xs. Please take extra special care when checking this particular measurement against your own.

Best fits: xxs, xs
Label: none, handmade
Fabric: cotton + handmade lace
Shoulders: 12 in. seam to seam
Bust: up to 35 in.
Waist: up to 27-28 in.
Hips: free
Sleeve length: 12.5 in.
Sleeves around upper arm: 9 in. around
Length: 24. 5 in.

Excellent antique condition, with only a couple of mends in the lace and a teeny tiny tear. There is a single spot on the very bottom back of the blouse, which is not very noticeable due to the amount of fabric surrounding it. This spot would most likely come out with some soaking in Oxy Clean and a bit of bleach, but I so love the gentle antique white color of the blouse, that I didn’t want to bleach it. This blouse has been lovingly hand washed and is ready to wear!
