This blousey shirt was designed and whipped up in a frenzy of Victorian mojo after visiting one of my favorite shops in Berkeley, Lacis. While wandering through a historical pattern book, I found out the way the Victorian seamstresses made those beautiful blouses with the fluffy paunch in front, and I just had to try it; but I wanted to update it. Thus, it is sleeveless and has a bit lower neckline. It is made from a beautiful, gauzy, ivory cotton baptiste with eyelet flower embroidery. The aforementioned "fluffy paunch" gathers into a fitted band at the waist, and the back is very fitted with historically accurate seaming. Lace encircles the neck, with an overlay of intricately patterned baptiste. It closes with a row of antique shell buttons up the side.

It is light as air and perfect as a camisole under a suit, a warm winter party, or a stroll on a pleasant day. It is fairly transparent and shown here with my Degas Everyday Corset. I LOVE this combination. Click here to see it:

SHIPPING. Each of my garments is made to order. For this reason, please allow up to 5 weeks for your item to be made, plus shipping time. If you need it sooner, contact me and I will let you know if that's possible. Also, please let me know if you need it by a specific date, even if it's a ways down the line, so I can make extra sure to get it to you in time.

SIZING. Ranunculus Market's standard sizing is as follows:

XS: bust 30, waist 24
S: bust 34, waist 28
M: bust 38, waist 33
L: bust 42, waist 37

Please select the size that's closest to your measurements (always err on the larger side). I'm always glad to explain how to take measurements, so convo me if you have questions.

If your size falls significantly outside of these standard sizes, RM is glad to tailor the garment to fit for a 10% additional cost. Some garments will require that a muslin precursor be mailed and fitted on you prior to making the final garment. You can learn more about the muslin service here:
