THIS ONE HAS SLEEVES, also with fancy lace, so it was used as a blouse. Also has ties on each side which must be there to tie to a skirt to keep the relatively short blouse from riding up!
In any event, this is a nice fancy Victorian period garment item. Made of very thin, fancy, extremely beautiful lace. Very nice designs with roses, flowers, and other fancy designs.
REALLY NICE LOOKING PERIOD VICTORIAN STAND-UP COLLAR STYLE. Appears to be a relatively small size, for a young or older woman. Made as a shoulder length, to come down and cover the bust. Scans provide an idea of the fancy lace and design details. Measures about 16 from shoulder seam to shoulder seam.
Also, 18 from the collar (under the stand up section) to the bottom. Measures 19 from shoulder seam to end of arm.I GOT THIS WITH THE OTHER 2 VICTORIAN BLOUSE LISTED, SO I BELIEVE THEY WERE OWNED AND WORN BY THE SAME WOMAN!! MAKES THEM PARTICULARLY NICE FOR THEM TO STILL STAY TOGETHER! Condition is VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT FOR THE AGE. Lace appears to be perfectt.
The style probably worn from 1870 through 1885, so I have listed as c. REALLY NICE FRILLY STAND-UP COLLAR. A REALLY SCARCE VICTORIAN CLOTHING ACCESSORY. Great for the antique clothing collector or someone interested in assembling antique Victorian costuming. For a collection or CAN BE USED.
THIS WOULD ALSO LOOK STUNNING AND UNIQUE WORN OVER MODERN CLOTHING SUCH AS A DRESS, FOR SOMEONE WHO LIKES TRENDY CLOTHING. COULD ALSO SERVE AS A GREAT INSPIRATION TO A FASHION DESIGNER OR SOMEONE IN THAT INDUSTRY!! A nice display piece for a collection and would make a nice gift.
