Delicate 40s shirt in a beautiful rust colour with such elegant features. Collared neck and a row of tiny silver coloured ball buttons to the front of the chest. Fantastic lattice style stiching to the shoulder and collar. Bodice is finished with diagonal lace bands. Loose blousey fit with long sleeves with tightly fitted cuffs, also trimmed in lace. No labels. Delicate semi-sheer chiffon crepe fabric.
Not labeled with a size but fits like a modern day Small, as it is intended to fit blousey/loosely.
Chest: 40" (best fit a 36" chest approx as this is meant to be loose fitting)
15" shoulder to shoulder
18" underarm to cuff
Bicep: 14" (to fit smaller)
Cuff width: 7" tight
Good condition, a little bit as is, but still wears and presents well.
-There are some small marks, some faint to the back, and three slightly more noticeable below the lowest lace band in front, see photos. Some very slight underarm discolouration, but this isn't very visible when worn. Has been handwashed and stain treated and I've been unable to get these out, so it may be something you would have to live with, although I don't think it detracts too much when worn, specially when tucked it.
-Cuff buttons have been moved in to make the cuffs tighter, but could be moved back to gain an 1-1.5" if needed. There is one small hole behind the buttons on one of the cuffs, which is completely hidden when worn but may show if button is moved.
-Colour is very slightly flamey in places, but as it is sheer this is not very noticeable.
