A very beautiful, elegant white cotton corsage or jacket with a tiny wasp-waist, together with a trained muslin skirt. The jacket is Cossack in style, with 33 tiny mother of pearl buttons running down one side. There are also metal hooks that fit into tiny hand stitched holes to close the jacket down the front. The ensemble came from an estate near Angers in France. Several of the original buttons were missing, so I am replacing them with a complete set of very similar antique mother of pearl buttons with shanks from my own collection. Apart form a couple of small holes to the base of the train on the skirt, I cannot find any damage to either garment. I photographed them both before laundering them, and in the photographs you will see a few very pale marks which have now disappeared. Some measurements (all taken with the garments laid flat and measured straight across) jacket: shoulder to shoulder 13 inches, sleeves 25 inches, underarm to underarm 16 inches, waist 11 inches, length 26 inches. Skirt: at the front the skirt is 40 inches, and at the back it is 50 inches long. The waist is currently 28 inches in circumference.
