An extravagant set from the Victorian era, this 1800's set will have you dripping in finery! The bodice is constructed of ox blood red silk with a the front and back yoke decorated with a black lace overlay on top of striped silk of cream and sky blue. The bodice features the classic pigeon bust shape aided by vertical knife pleats which also conceal the eleven button fastening, shoulder ruffles, and beautiful arced seaming on the back leading to a tail feather peplum. The silk skirt has a ruffled hem, pleats around the closure, and hook and eye with shell button for fastening. Both pieces are fully lined with cotton. This set is in great vintage condition, with subtle well done period mends but no holes, stains, or odors to note.
