Excellent black silk Victorian bodice in a hard to find XL size! Made of a black matte silk satin with puffed sleeves. Fully lined in cotton. Cotton lining hooks down the front, then there is a shirred silk chiffon section that hooks under the front of the collar.The silk has several hooks below that piece. Puffed sleeves with bands across them. Nicely tailored and very well made with hand stitched dots on the pleats on the back. Lace trim on the ends of the cuffed sleeves.

CONDITION: Very good to excellent condition. The fabric feels very sound. Some creases from wear under the arms. The lace trim on the ends of the sleeves is torn and delicate. I'd just remove it.
