Very nice fine white cotton blouse with close fitting neck that has sections on tiny pleats and cotton lace. Around the yoke is a floaty layer of cotton with 2 rows of lace trim around the edges. The blouse buttons down the back and it has a tie for around the waist.
The ties on the waist will only fit about a 24 inch waist, but you could make it larger by adding longer ties.
CONDITION - The blouse is in very good condition. Lightly off white from age (I only gave it a quick dip, I didn't soak it or try to whiten it)
There is an old stitched repair on the back just below the ruffle that is about 1/2 x 1 inch in size. Nearby are about 8 tiny pinhead size holes, another on the sleeves. A few tiny breaks in the lace.
