This beautifully delicate broderie anglais top looks as if it may have been handmade by an extremely skilled home dressmaker. The button placket, neckline and cuffs are all elegantly finished in plain cotton lawn to compliment the linear broderie design. The square neckline works well with the slightly abbreviated body length giving the whole thing a really crisp, clean look.
It's tough to date. We could see this layered over a 1950's strappy sundress like a little jacket, or in the late 1980's styled with some preworn 501s from Kensington Market. Regardless, we think she's a total gem, in incredible condition and still brilliant, bright white.
Our Values and this specific product:
- Natural materials
- One off/limited edition
Size: We consider this to be a size 14 to 16 based on the bust and waist, but the armholes are quite neat so it may be better for a 12. Please see our size guide for reference.
