Victorian
Bloomers
W/Crochet Lace

These pretty little Victorian bloomers are done in white cotton. The bloomers have a set-in fitted waistband with a "double" side button closure - both sides have a button hole on the back and front. The side openings are extra long. There is marking on the inside of the waistband which reads, "710X". Each leg features a band of beautiful white openwork, then a 2" lace ruffle. The bloomers are in good condition, but they do need a bit of mending and trimming. There is a small tear in the crotch, which could easily be patched and the bottom edge of the ruffle has some minor damage - there are also a few small tears in the ruffle which are not noticeable without inspection. These vintage bloomers measure approximately: waistline=22" and length=25".

1870's/1880's Bustle Cage Crinoline

1870's/1880's Bustle Cage Crinoline

Bustle hoop cages was fashionable between 1867 and the mid 1870's. This is a rare example of a hoop combined with a bustle! The 1870's brought about bustles being seperate garments and not incorporated in a crinoline. This is a nice example of a bustle hoop from this time period. The cage is a combination of cream colored twill tapes and thread (painted) covered wires. The bustle portion of the crinoline is also done with wires and is incorporated into the hoop with twill tapes and circular metal findings. The tapes that attach the bustle are in some disrepair; however they are still sturdy. The back of the waistband is stamped, "La Bell 58". The hoop closes with a center front metal buckle. The waistband tape is frayed, but waistline still measures 25-26". There is some printing on the waistline tape in the back; however, I cannot make it out. The hoop has five (5) vertical tapes and measures approximately 30" long with a bottom diameter of 19". The crinoline is in good condition, but does show wear.

Unusual Styled 1870's Bustle Cage Crinoline

Unusual Styled 1870's Bustle Cage Crinoline

Bustle hoop cages was fashionable between 1867 and the mid 1870's. This is a rare example of a hoop combined with a bustle! The 1870's brought about bustles being seperate garments and not incorporated in a crinoline. The wiring of the hoop is intricate and almost an art design in itself! The upper portion of the front of the hoop is open and falls straight to the floor. The hoop closes with a tape waistband which should fasten with a metal buckle; however the buckle is missing. Two thinner pieces of material have been attached to the waistband to tie it closed as the wider tapes measure less than a 24" waistline. The bustle portion of the cage is very pronounced and the bustle wires continue through the skirt portion. The skirt portion narrows in the middle, then flares a bit as it approaches the floor - it almost has an hour glass look to it. There are some broken wires in the hoop and bustle, but the tapes attaching the bustle to the cage is in good condition. The cage measures approximately 31" long with a 20" diameter front to back. The cage does have some problems, but overall in good condition and so unique!

Vintage Cotton Lace Nightgown

Vintage
Cotton Lace
Nightgown The lovely white vintage nightgown is pretty enough to wear as a summer dress! The gown is done in a heavy white cotton and nicely decorated with wide lace. The gown is a larger size and cut straight. The neckline is wide and slightly rounded in both the front and back. The neckline is created with a wide lace (similar to Battenburg) and the lace continues around the arm hole and over the shoulder so that the front and back create wide shoulder straps. The straps do not have a closure and are pinned in the photo. The front of the gown has the cross-stitched initials, "M.D". Side gussets are sewn into the side seams giving the gown a bit more room toward the hemline. The gown is in very good condition. The material is sturdy and very wearable. The gown is displayed on a dress form which measures approximately: bsutline=42"; waistline=32"; hips=42" and length (shoulder to hemline)=49". When measured from side seam to side seam, the bust measured approximately 46" and the waist measured approximately 50".

1900's Silk Undergarment

1900's
Silk Undergarment This beautiful silk vintage undergarment is simple, yet so lovely! The gown has an empire waistline with a four (4) button front closure. The opening continues below the waistline. The neckline is squared and trimmed with a dainty lace. The sleeves are short (and small). They are also trimmed with lace. The skirt portion falls to the floor with a long train in the back. There is a double-ruffle along the hemline. The bottom ruffle is silk whereas the top layer is white cotton - also lace trimmed. The back of the skirt has a center seam which branches off to include two material panels. These panels create an inverted "V" shape. The gown is in good condition, but there are scattered holes throughout. I don't think I would recommend wearing this piece, but it would be a great addition to a vintage clothing collection. The bust measures approximately 32"-33".

Circa 1800's Chemise

Circa 1800's
Chemise This wonderful homespun linen chemise dates to the late 1700's/early 1800's. The vintage chemise was purchased with the following corset - VEC589. Both came from the same person and both are embroidered with the initials "V.C" in red. The chemise has little shape. It has a square neckline which is edged in handmade lace. The lace design is simple, yet perfectly in keeping with the garment. The chemise is shaped like a square. It is wide and straight. The sleeves are simple in design with gussets under each arm. This was typical of this period. The chemise is all hand sewn. The chemise is large - much larger than the size of the original owner. This too was typical of the period. The chemise measures as follows: bustline=51"; waistline=60" hemline width=80"; length (shoulder to hemline)=41". The chemise is in very good condition, but does have a bit of yellowing. I have not soaked it, but I do believe it would come out. This is a wonderful collector's item.
