Witchy Vintage

Victorian Silk Bustle Dress In Brown and Gold$415.00

Size:
extra small

This dress dates from around 1876.

Unfortunately the dress is missing its underskirt, which is why the proportions look off (there should be more length to the skirt), but it is still lovely and would be a wonderful study piece. 

+++ Measurements +++

Bodice:

31" bust

27" waist

22" length

Skirt:

25" waist

26. 5" length

+++ Condition +++

Condition overall for this dress is quite good, especially considering age. It is not particularly fragile and has held up well. However, there are some flaws to note:

Underskirt missing

A couple of missing buttons, remaining are mismatched and not original

A few places with loose stitching in the complicated bustle of the skirt

A strap in the skirt lining has torn free in one place (still attached on one side)

A few faint stains/discolorations

A couple of very small holes

Waist closures missing on skirt

Some armpit discoloration in the lining of the bodice

Although this piece is quite strong, due to its age I would not recommend it for wearing.

This item is sold from a vintage boutique in Houston, TX.
