Truly beautiful late 1800s Victorian grey cotton pinstripe bodice and skirt set. The fabric is a beautiful thick cotton with woven pinstripes. Bodice has pleats in the front And down the center of the back. Top features cream floral lace appliqué, woven with pink satin ribbon. Bodice is lined in cream silk cotton and in remarkable shape. Skirt has a full sweep and ruffle hem. Fastens with hook and eyes down the front of the bodice and at the waist of the skirt. There are two hooks on the interior back of the top that fastens to the back of the skirt- a great indicator of skirt placement.
Rare larger waist size for era.
Skirt is pinned on model, bodice is not pinned. Model is size XS and 5'4" for size reference.
Shoulders: 14.5” across
Remarkably excellent antique condition. Strong and wearable! Light storage stains on right arm of bodice and a some on skirt. Possibly a couple tiny holes, but not easily found.
