Antique RARE 1850s Floral Crewel Embroidery Evening Silk Bodice Ballgown XXS
Incredible rare late 1850s museum-worthy evening bodice. This has intricate crewel embroidery work in a floral motif all over the front of the bodice, the shoulders, and part of the back. This most likely had short ruffled sleeves that have since been removed. Back hook and eye closures. This exceptional piece may very well have been brought over in a steamer trunk! Although this is very st urdy and could be worn if you’re petite! – I’m thinking it would be best for display. M E A S U R E M E N T S. Fits like: extra extra small. Length: 12.5 (from shoulder to bottom hem/point). Condition: excellent – the hem around the armholes is mostly unfinished due to the removal of the sleeves. S H I P P I N G. TERRASITA ships domestic and international orders daily. R E F U N D S & E X C H A N G E S. MOST sales are considered final. Vintage clothing is pre-worn and pre-loved and as a result some pieces may show signs of wear or use. I carefully inspect each item and disclose any signs of wear in our detailed descriptions. I want you to be happy with your item! S I Z I N G & F I T. SIZING – Vintage clothing sizing does not reflect modern standards. When determining size, make sure you account for enough room to move comfortably. Additionally, vintage clothing is more fragile and should be worn with this in mind. Occasionally there are seam allowances or darts that can be removed, as well as tailors that can alter a vintage item to fit your particular shape. When determining size I recommend measuring the following. HIPS: measure around the fullest part of your hips. BUST: measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra. WAIST: measure around the smallest point of your natural waistline. SHOULDER TO WAIST: measure from the very top of your shoulder – where the seam would lie, down the front, over the bust, to your waistline. LENGTH: measure from the top of your shoulder, down the front, and to the point where the hem would be. Inseam measurements for pants would be measured from the inside of the leg at the very top of the groin, down to the hem. SHOE SIZING – I tale actual measurements inside the shoe from toe to heel, as well as width measurements inside the shoe as accurately as possible. Just ask and I can help! M I S C.
