What an exquisite piece, indeed. This half slip is undeniably a presentation piece, not simply an undergarment to be outshone by outerwear. Fifteen distinct rows of thin tucking frame two inch-long strips of 100% handmade insertion lace, while the waist is an extremely desirable ribbon adjustment. It is pictured on a mannequin with a 9” waist circumference, and can go in either direction approximately 1.5 inches. The bottom hem is beautifully decorated with intricate broderie anglaise, and scalloped edging that give it an irresistible and elegant allure. This will look FABULOUS adorning your favorite Jumeau – do not pass it up, as pieces like this do not come around very often. Give your doll a present, and grace her in this beautiful antique half slip.
Waist Circumference: (Fits 9” mannequin, adjustable)
Condition: Excellent. Free of major rips, tears, threading, or staining, this half-slip is in truly fabulous condition, with only the most minor and miniscule discoloration spots here and there at the bottom. The back just under the ribbon ties has some slight tearing due to stress, but overall, the piece is fantastic and presents very well.
