Shipping to United States: Free

At once feminine and delicate, this fabulous riding top was definitely worn with some sort of bodice to keep the tiny, trim waist in check. Although this is over 100 years old it is in excellent condition and made extremely well. Black sateen fabric is covered in fine lace, small band collar, round lace-fabric covered buttoned front placket (21 buttons) notched cuffs, structured bodice (not sure if whale bone or just solid inserts), interior hooked strap, nipped waist and small pointed tail in back. Excellent condition with one note: There is a small rip in the lace on the right lower sleeve. Someone has taken extremely good care of this top, fits XXS, c1900s. The following measurements were taken with the garment lying FLAT and recorded in inches, please be sure and DOUBLE the appropriate measurements: Shoulders: 13, chest: 16, waist: 12, length front: 18, length back to bottom of tail: 21 ½.
