Original Vintage 1880s pure french linen, silk raised embroidery and lace Bustle Peplum Camisole or under corset chemise with the most exquisite details and original linen tape at the waist.
Made in 1887 by Mermylene Lingerie Ltd and was given to a bride as a Dowry gift by her Mother. It’s remained unworn and safely stored since this date.
It is truly wonderful and so beautiful, just perfect for adding a unique and genuine look to any vintage collection, being highly wearable as a vintage addition to any themed ensemble.
Wear as intended as an undergarment or team with skirts, pants, shorts or under a business suit for a touch of feminine chic, it's so very versatile in colour and design.
