Rare Civil War Period Antique Blouse with Balloon Sleeves . What can I say... Such a Rare a wonderful piece. This one has been in my collection for years. At one point I was going to take out all the pin tucks and open her up a bit, but I can't bring myself to mess around with such a Rare find. I have gone over this piece with a fine tooth comb. The Silk Net Lace is strong and soft and it is Entirely hand Stitched. The waist band is breaking down and there are no closures. I find one tiny hole in the mid left sleeve. A Great piece for the Serious Collector.
Clean and Ready to Wear!
