For Years when I preformed or directed plays, I collected costumes of all kinds. If it didn't fit me but was interesting enough, I would purchase and put it aside for either myself or someone in my cast to wear. This is one of those costumes. Although I never got to wear this one it has been packed away with the rest of my things. I did gently wash it and Ironed it the best I could. I did not take a chance and iron it too high for fear of scorching the cotton so a visit to a good dry cleaners should do the trick. Like most of my items, they have no tags so please read measurements to determine if this will fit. This white on white embroidered cutwork eyelet blouse has a beautiful pattern on both the front and the back. It features a series of eyelets along the waist area that would have had a belt or ribbon of some kind running through to cinch it. I just used a small piece of lace to show you what it looks like cinched. Both the sleeves and the hem area are set with a series of embroidered scallop design points. The sleeves are butterfly sleeves that are about 3/4 down the arm. I am guessing that this was some sort of summer party dress. It has two buttons only in the back and an area above where I pinned it to keep it together for photographing. The only issues it has is that there is very slight yellowing throughout the cotton, not a spot exactly just areas that are not as bright as the rest. But it is in good vintage condition with no rips or tears. Could possibly be bleached professionally. Since it is cotton it should take to dye perfect and would look wonderful as a black steampunk blouse or just repurpose it into something else if you fancy.
