Antique Victorian Pleated Silk Blouse
Lovely pleated silk blouse c.1890s. Victorian high collar. White cotton lace and black velvet trim throughout. Sheer pin-tucked chiffon neckline. Sleeves have pleated extensions that end at three-quarter length, which are attached with delicate chiffon lining. Length falls to natural waist, since it was traditionally worn with a skirt or dress overlay. Hook and eyes up the entire back. A treasure and keepsake still in beautiful condition.
DECADE / 1890s-1900s
MATERIAL / Silk, Silk Chiffon, Cotton Lace, Velvet Trim
CONDITION / This beauty is still wearable, but only with some delicacy and care. The lining is partially still in place, but made of a very thin and worn-down silk chiffon. Blouse is still wearable without the lining, but the two-tier sleeves are held with it and will need precaution when worn. Overall a stunning piece that can live on!
