Victorian Black Brocade Vintage Gown/Cream Accents

Victorian
Black Brocade Vintage Gown/Cream Accents The material is beautiful on this antique gown. It is a bodice and skirt dating to the late 1890's. The bodice is very fitted with a rounded neckline and a center front hook/eye closure. The bodice is lined in a light blue cotton material with a very small design and is boned. The back of the bodice has a wide waistband with horizontal pleating. This waistband continues around to the front and has a side hook/eye closure. Pleats fan out from the waistband towards the neckline, giving fullness to the shoulders. Attached to the front portion of the waistband is a wonderful cream collar with goldtone trim swirling throughout. This collar consists of three vertical strips of material on each side. It is only attached at the waistband and flips over the neckline to wrap around the back. I'm not sure if this was added later, or never finished, but it does need to be attached is a more secure manner and the upper edges are raw. I'm not sure how it goes, but I'm sure an experienced seamstress or clothing collector would be able to put it in shape. The sleeves are slightly puffed at the shoulders and straight to a wide cuff of matching cream material. The cuff is also decorated with the gold trim. The skirt has a center back hook/eye closure and is slightly gathered. It is fully lined in black polished cotton and has a velvet hem protector and stiff ruffle which is sewn to the underlining. Both pieces of this vintage gown are in very good condition. The material is sturdy and the gown is wearable; however it is a very small size. I have it displayed on my size 0 dress form which measures: bustline=30"; waistline=21". The skirt waistline is larger and has been taken in. It currently measures approximately 23".

1890's Silk Victorian Mourning Outfit

1890's Silk
Victorian Mourning Outfit If you want one Mourning piece to upgrade your collection, or want to begin your new Mourning collection with a premiere fashion statement of Victorian fashion, than this is the vintage outfit for you! A petite size, the outfit is astounding in its mariad of beading and has lasted well over the 100 years since it was constructed. The bodice has the slightly puffed sleeves of the Victorian period, as well as the mirrored V on both sides of the bodice. This outfit almost defines the 1890s, as it has most of the common characteristics of the era: A seperate skirt and bodice, the bodice is lined and boned on the seams, the bodie fastens in the front and under the left shoulder with two layers of material (one interior muslin, the other is the outer layer of silk), the skirt is plain and slightly fitted through the hips and the sleeves are full and mounted on a lining that tightly fits the arms. In addition, this wonderful outfit has a few surprises: a rauched bodice, beaded collar and sleeves, 12" beaded trim on the bodice, and three gorgeous beaded embellishments on the skirt. The pleating on the back of the skirt is to perfect to not notice in its own right. This outfit is in excellent condition, with only a few minor problems to be expected of a 110 year old outfit! There is a tiny mark less than 1/8" on one sleeve, 1 interior hook has slightly ripped out from the muslin, and there is a 1" tear near the back waist hook-all easily repaired with just a couple minutes of whipstiching. As with all older pieces, the thread on the heavy beading is becoming fragile and should be checked and re-threaded where necessary. Measurements: Bodice: 13" neck; 14" shoulder to shoulder, 22" sleeve, 20" neck to bodice waist, 24" waist, 12" long beaded trim. Skirt: 23" waist, 40" length.

C. 1890's - 1900's Wedding Bodice

C. 1890's -
1900's
Wedding Bodice This wedding bodice is beautiful. The material is a tussue silk and is as light as butterfly wings - just beautiful! The bodice has a high neckline with a large ruffle through the bodice - both front and back. Large material bows decorate each shoulder with another large bow decorating the center back of the collar. The sleeves are wonderful - huge and billowing - again, they remind me of a butterfly! The bodice is fitted and fully lined with 13 bones (see Lining/Petersham Views). The information printed on the petersham is not fully legible, but I can make out "Detroit Michigan" (see Lining/Petersham Views). The bodice is in good condition, but it does have some spotting which I have not tried to clean. The silk may have a few small tears, but is in very good condition considering the delicate nature of this material.

LARGER SIZE!!!
Circa 1900's Black Lace/Beaded Vintage Gown

Circa
1900's Black Lace/Beaded Vintage Gown This lovely black Edwardian gown is a beautiful combination of black lace and black beading. The vintage gown has a small front "V" neckline which is edged with a very narrow light blue velvet. An attached black lace "shawl" creates a deeper "V" panel which is decorated with black beading. The "shawl" begins at waistline (front and back) and encircles shoulders. The "shawl" is beautifully accented with black beaded fringe. The fringe is attached to one side of Shawl and follows scalloped edging of lace. This creates a very dramatic look. The gown is completely lined, however there are a few areas where underlining is split - remainder is fine. There are four (4) bones in bodice - one on each side and two in front. The gown has 3/4 length sleeves which are gathered into a satin beaded banding. The gown has an attached wide black satin belt and a center back hook/eye closure. The skirt features an asymmetrical lace hemline and is decorated on one side (more towards back side) with a beaded decorative tassel. This vintage gown is in very good condition and lace is beautiful - I believe it is Chantilly lace. The lace has a few breaks and as previously mentioned, there are a few areas of splitting in underlining, but other than that, gown is sturdy. The gown may have been altered a bit, but if so, it was done very well. The gown is also in a larger size and with a bit of reinforcement, could be worn. Unfortunately, my photos do not capture true beauty of lace and beading. The gown measures approximately: bustline=38"; shoulder to shoulder width=14 1/2"; waistline=29" and length (shoulder to hemline)=57".

1900's Vintage White Net Waist

1900's
Vintage White Net Waist This is just a wonderful early vintage blouse! The entire blouse is done in a net material and would need to be worn over a camisole or slip. The waist has a three-layer, stand-up collar with one layer becoming a large square collar in the back. The blouse has a ruffled center front button closure with clear, round glass buttons. Horizontal ruching is sandwiched between the center closure ruffle and another vertical row of ruffles in the front. The sleeves are long and fairly fitted. They end in ruffled cuffs. The cuffs have snap closures. The blouse is very small, expecially the waistline. It measures approximately: bustline=30"; shoulder to shoulder width=12 1/2", waistline=22" and length (center back neck to hemline)=16". The waist is in very good condition, but does have a few small pin holes. As you can see from the photos, this waist would make a beautiful display piece.

C. 1915

The collar is edged with a floral trim followed by narrow white lace. The blouse has a center front button closure with mother-of-pearl buttons (one button is missing). Vertical pin pleats begin at the shoulders and continue down the entire front of the waist. The back is also decorated with pin pleats; however, these are grouped into four (4) "stripes". The sleeves are long and full. The cuff is also decorated with floral trim and white lace. The waist is in very good condition. There may be a few small pin holes, but other than that and the missing button, the blouse is ready to go.

C. 1900's Black Vintage Gown

C. 1900's
Black Vintage Gown This simple black vintage gown may have been worn during a mourning period. The gown has a high neckline which is done in black net. This net continues through a front and back yoke. The yoke is larger in the front than the back, but both are shaped in a "V". The remaining portion of the bodice is vertically pleated which adds extra room to the bust. The dress has 3/4 length sleeves and a center back hook/eye closure. The dress looks like it has been altered, but it is in wearable condition. The bodice has four (4) bones and is unlined. The skirt begins at the natural waistline and has four (4) vertical pleats which begin approximately at the knees. The waistband, as well as the neckline and sleeves, are decorated with a "blanket stitching". This vintage dress is in very good condition, but there is a small hole in the net, by the back closure.

Circa 1900 Vintage Silk Waist

Circa 1900
Vintage Silk Waist Lovely cream colored vintage silk shirtwaist. The waist has a stand- up collar and center front closure. The closure is trimmed with a dainty lace trim. The entire waist is constructed with vertical pin pleats, with the front falling straight and the back gathered at the waistline. The sleeves are long and gathered at the lower end. The sleeves are lined and a layer of lace extends from the lower portion of the sleeve - giving the appearance of an under sleeve. The sleeve detailing is much nicer than the photos show. An under bodice of cotton also has a front hook/eye closure. Originally, the under bodice had three (3) bones (one on each side and one in the center back), but all have been removed. A petersham encircles the waistline and also closes with a hook/eye closure. The shirtwaist is in very good condition, but it does have a few light spots (I do not know if they can be removed) and a few areas that have thinned a bit. The material is lovely with a delicate overall color-on-color floral design. The waist measures approximately: bustline=32"; shoulder to shoulder=12"; waist=24"; length (center back neck to waistline)=14" and overall length (center back neck to hemline)=18 1/2".
