Edwardian Embroidered Muslin Blouse. English C1910
A lovely soft muslin blouse with a square neckline and side front opening which fastens with hidden hooks and eyes. It has an gently elasticated waist and the lower peplum skirt of the blouse is covered in meandering mercerised cotton hand embroidery.
The blouse is evocative of the costume that Lara the heroine of Doctor Zhivago might have worn, it has a quiet understated beauty all of its own.
It is in excellent antique condition.
