Here is a Victorian beige silk blouse for a child or a doll. Made by hand is has short puffed sleeves and pleats on the lower portion. It closes with snaps--the silk covered buttons are just for looks. The flat measurements are: Armpit to armpit 24", Around bottom 29", Length from back of neck 14" and across back of shoulders 10". It is in very good condition for its age but there are a few minor issues: There are two light stains on the left front which may even be water from when I was ironing it. On the back among the pleats is an area where there are several holes. They a not that easy to see without spreading the pleats. There are a few holes in the netting that attaches the collar to the garment. It looks like the piece has been repaired in several places. Since it is made of silk I think that these flaws are minor considering the age.
