Antique Victorian Dress c1800s Black Satin Silk Lace-2 piece dress-mourning. Antique Victorian 2 piece dress. This lovely gem features lots of net lace-very full ruffles. The lace is quite amazing! The rows of lace on the skirt are connected by satin ribbon there are a few areas where the lace needs to be reconnected to the ribbon, there is satin ribbon stitched to the body of the blouse and top part of the skirt-some of this needs to be reattached. The sleeves are very full. This dress was once lined with black silk-the silk has shattered and most of it is no longer present-the sleeves still have their lining. There are several broken brides in the lace-majority of the repairs would require restitching the ribbon, attaching the ruffle to ribbon on the skirt and repairing a few open seams, redoing the lining. Blouse-Arm Pit to Arm Pit: 30 inches (measurements side to side flat across & doubled) Waist side to side: 26 inches(measurements side to side flat across & doubled) shoulder to hem: 19 inches sleeves- 19.5 inches. Skirt-waist-28 inches (measurements side to side flat across & doubled) length- 43 inches. Measurements are taken on the outside of the garment.
