This striking 1890s Victorian silky polished cotton ensemble is sure to impress!
We adore the “flying comet” motif, and many inspiring details which include gathers and ruffles, giant leg of mutton sleeves, a fully boned bodice with inner lace closure and a full, gathered skirt.
The ensemble in is absolutely remarkable condition - with no fade or loss of colour, no major tears or impeding damage to its structural integrity.
There are a couple minor pinholes and seam separations (pictured), and a couple missing hooks/eyes from bodice.
Truly a museum-worthy piece, for the collector, and certainly wearable with care!

Vintage garments have been previously worn and lovingly cared for, they may however have a blemish or two. We try our best to note any damage/major wear of each garment - although we may sometimes overlook things - which we do apologise for.
Please do not expect all vintage garments to come perfect, unless stated so.
Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today. Most vintage garments do not have the stretch or give of modern fabrics. To ensure the best fit, we suggest you measure (twice) a similar garment and compare it to the measurements we have listed.
We cannot offer refunds for fit issues, variances in monitor colors, or buyer’s remorse since these things are out of our control.

We believe the customer does hold some responsibility when purchasing vintage items, and should be familiar with the nature of vintage clothing before purchasing a vintage garment from any online shop.
