Gorgeous and unusual early 1900s black silk slip, likely designed to be worn while in mourning. Featuring a trapeze shape, sleeveless bodice and lovely soutache design along the neckline, this pretty piece looks lovely layered or worn belted on its own. Pull-over, no closures, semi-sheer, best with a slip if worn alone.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →bust: 40 inches →waist: 46 inches →hips: 48 inches →length: 38 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Medium; the measurements may seem generous, but I think this was likely a teen girl's and thus would be best for a petite wearer.
CONDITION: Good, as-is antique condition. There's a few moth holes throughout, as pictured, as well as some wear to the soutache and silk. Presents well, particularly with a slip worn underneath, but does have noticeable flaws. Quite sturdy for silk! Please keep in mind this is a vintage 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.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels, probably homemade. Appears to be made of silk or a silk blend. Hand wash or dry clean.
