Antique Edwardian Blouse, Embroidered Chiffon, as is, 1910s Sleeveless Sheer

ERA: 1910s
MEASUREMENTS: 16 inches long, fir 34 to 35 inch bust with room (38 inches around underarms) 27 inch waist
MATERIAL: silk chiffon
LABEL: none
CLEANING: Was given a few quick dips in mild detergent.

Sheer ivory silk chiffon blouse with lace collar. Has snaps down the front. The lace collar has curved wire supports in the back to hold it up. Embroidery on the front and the back.

CONDITION: Good condition. The dye in the embroidered has run in spots.
There is a 1 inch hole on the front, midway down, along with smaller scattered holes. Allover aging with some brown spots, the lace has holes and browning.

The real issue is the smell. The person that I bought this from sprayed it with some kind of air freshener and I cannot get rid of the smell!! I've given quick dips to try to remove the smell (cannot be soaked too long or you'll ruin the embroidery) I've hung it in my outside screened-in porch for several weeks during the summer and in my storage room are for several months, but the freshener smell is still there. Your hands will smell from touching it.
