Offered for sale is this exquisitely beautiful Victorian (1837-1901) bodice and skirt with a train. Stripes of golden embroidery run diagonally throughout the design. Black lace embellishes the shoulders, bodice, and skirt. The outfit is further embellished with black jet beadwork on the bodice, front and back, both sleeves, and also the skirt. The outfit would be comparable to a size 2 in modern sizing standards. It doesn't even fit on my size 6 mannequin. It is clean and in remarkably good condition for its age.
