Antique Edwardian Blouse with Embroidery and Ribbon, fits 38 inch bust, 1900s

ERA: early 1900s
MEASUREMENTS: The blouse is 18 inches long, fits 38 inch bust with room (42 inches around blouse underarms) 18 inches across the shoulders
MATERIAL: fine cotton gauze
LABEL: none
CLEANING: hand washed and hung to dry

Lightweight, slightly sheer white cotton blouse with wide neckline. May have been more of a lingerie piece than a blouse. Snaps on one shoulder. Embroidered scalloped neckline, ends of sleeves and hem. Has floral embroidery and open work on the front of the neck and the end of each sleeve. Wide slits around the waist for you to run a wide piece of ribbon through it.
Ribbon shown in photo is new, it's a  too bright for the era and it's stiff. I couldn't find a nice wide silk ribbon.

CONDITION: Very good to Excellent condition. Tiny 1/4 inch fray spot next to snap on shoulder. 1/2 inch repair spot on the center of back.
