Ethereal early 1900s white cotton muslin skirt and blouse set with Broderie Anglaise and three-dimensional embroidery. The blouse has a cotton tape at the waistline which can be used to create structure if desired. Button back closure on the blouse with hook and eyes at the skirt. A beautiful and timeless set with life still left in them.
Best Fits Size XS / UK 4-6
Fabric: Cotton Muslin
Condition: Fair vintage Condition. This has been a well-loved set with the blouse in particular showing her age – the fabric is wearing thin and has been subject to extensive darning and a crude mend has been made to the front of the blouse at some point. This is not overly noticeable due to the drape of the blouse, but it is worth noting. The skirt is in strong condition with a similar seamed mend and some weakening at the waistline. Despite these flaws this set is wearable but is sold as a study/ collectors set.
