Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Classic 1880s Victorian mourning bodice done in a black silk blend featuring a crew collar, pretty pleats, full sleeves, dramatic cuffs and a linen lining. Bewitching when worn open for an era-bending look, or a great addition to your mourning regalia. Fully lined, hook & eyes closures at front.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 14.5 inches →bust: 34 inches →waist: 28 inches →length: 20 inches →sleeve length: 21 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: Small - Medium
CONDITION: Fair antique condition; wearable with care, but the silk is splitting/shattering in numerous places. It's not particularly noticeable while worn, and the linen lining is quite sturdy, though stained. Missing a few hook or eyes, but that's an easy fix. Great for a costume or photoshoot! Please keep in mind this is an antique garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Black with linen lining
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of a silk blend outer with a linen lining.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments that fits you well. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
