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.
Ethereal 1910s sheer navy blouse featuring delicate tea color lace trim and collar, slight pigeon breast fit and decorative buttons. Absolutely divine and the perfect pairing to an authentic walking skirt or modern wide leg trousers! Unlined, sheer, snap closures along bust and at wrists.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 17 inches →bust: 40 inches →waist: 30 inches →length: 15.5 inches →sleeve length: 19 inches →cuff circumference: 8 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small - Small; best worn loose to preserve the garment. Sleeves are VERY narrow.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with a smattering of small holes, mostly under the left armpit and on the back beneath the collar. A few smaller ones on sleeves. When paired with a navy camisole, most will visually disappear; see last photo for holes. There is patina on all the snaps but they work well! The material was too delicate for me to try to go after the patina. Despite these flaws, this rare, desirable piece is wearable with respect and care. 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: Deep navy blue with "tea-stained" lace accents
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents label, but professionally made. Steam lightly (without touching steamer head to garment) as needed.
PLEASE NOTE: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing! Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear. Take a look at our store policies for more information.
