Antique 1890s 1900s Victorian Beaded Lace Watered Silk Bodice, Tiered Short Sleeves, Victorian Evening Bodice Formal


Breathtaking antique late 1890s early 1900s Victorian black lace evening bodice with black beading and beautiful watered silk trim! This bodice is so feminine and pretty with fantastic tiered lace sleeves with interior bubble hems. Cross-over lace in front with watered silk bow accents and waist trim. The backside has beaded lace panels that criss-cross and hook into place near hem. Fully lined in silk taffeta with a very fine sheer tissue silk over layer. Interior is boned at every seam and there is an inner silk waistband with the fork tine closure. The bodice closes with hook/eyes down the back.

Two snaps closures were added to back (they have now been emoved).
