"Silk Floral Embroidery On Tulle" Antique Edwardian Silk Floral Embroidered Tulle Blouse UK 8-10 US 4-6


This divine 1910's Edwardian tulle blouse in a soft shade of antique cream, embellished with cream silk trailing floral embroidery with cut out embroidered details, is a rare piece to behold.    

The rounded neckline of the blouse, is framed by a Peter Pan collar, accented by trailing floral embroidery and edged with pleated tulle, creating soft gathers along the neckline. The simple shoulder line, sets off the short length sleeves, which are accented by softly gathered pleats along each shoulder seam, creating a softly puffed design, which draw the eye to the elegant embroidery details along each cuff.  The straight cut of the bodice, sets off the truly magnificent floral embroidery and cut out details, which feature along the front and back of the blouse. Finished with tailored darts along the hemline, and press stud fastenings along the side seam. This blouse is sheer, and may need to be worn with a slip to conceal one's modesty.
