Victorian 1860s Velvet Bodice
Beautiful Rust coloured velvet bodice with cream silk lining. Mainly hand stitched but with a couple of machine stitched seams at top of sleeves and down sleeve length. There is hand embroidered decoration. The bodice is in reasonable condition considering its age, although there is damage to the centre front decoration, braid and beading. The lining is in good condition apart from some areas of wear especially at the neck. The price reflects its condition.
