Blouse from the early 1900's made from very light weight white cotton. The sleeves are billowy and full with fitted lace cuffs underneath. The color is made up of many lace medallions with tiny pleats. No buttons. Ties at the waist. I am selling it "as is". It has a few small holes and has a few tiny mending spots. I have hand washed it, dried it on the line in the sunshine and lightly ironed it. The rest is up to you. It could be carefully worn as is if the defects didn't bother you, or upcycled or resytled adding more lace and fabric etc. Very romantic and beautiful even if it isn't perfect. After all, it is 100 years old.

Here is some additional sizing/ condition info: I tried on the blouse/jacket. I have a 34" bust and it fit me fine through the chest. It ties in the front and there are no button so it might be considered more a little jacket than a blouse. The sleeves are really long 27" but the cuffs are fitted so the rest of the sleeves billow over making the length fit any length of arm. You would need smaller wrists to allow for the fitted cuffs. The length is shorter in front , kinda cropped length (18") and the back is longer (20") The shoulders are 15". The only spot that fit me a tad snug is the underarm. I do have larger biceps so maybe that is why. The fabric is tissue thin, gauze. The work in the piece is amazing with all the tiny little pleats through out. The holes are small and probably are 6 or so. most are under the collar but 2 are on one of the sleeves. The fabric is so translucent that they really don't show too bad. The rows and rows of lace need a little bit of mending here and there between some of the pieces. You would have to wear with care because of the sheerness. Beautiful, romantic top all that being said.
