Wonderful Victorian late 1880’s bodice, simple yet impeccably made. Double breasted styled with beautiful meticulous pleating in the center and 46 jet buttons, 23 of them are fastening. There is a high satin collar and the rest of the bodice is made of silk taffeta. One of the left side hip gores there is a small pocket. The bodice is in wonderful shape with very little damage. The exterior has one little pin hole on the left side near the collar. The interior has a tear on the left front by the buttonholes. There is an old repair done in brown silk but it has split along its seam probably from a tight fit on the last wearer. The buttons on that side have been moved to give a bit more room at the waist but could easily be moved back. There is a split at one of the shoulders from it having been stored on a hanger for many years. All this aside the work on the inside is incredible. Lots of neat hand sewing all bones are there and in good shape and has all buttons, hooks, and eyes. Still wearable and not a tinny size. It has been cleaned and is ready to wear.
