This is a lovely Edwardian , evening wear , bodice .
This bodice base is sleeveless and is made in black tafetta . The inside has stays in the back and the front. Around the high waist is a black velvet cumberbun looking sash that is attached to the base.
The sleeves are a 3/4 length in a sheer black , double layer, netting . These lovely sleeves are embellished with starburst of black sequin and seed beads . The cuff is matching black velvet . The neckline is squarish and has a pleated chiffon drape completely around with it hanging longer in front than back.
The structure of this bodice is made to accomodate a larger bust easily a large B small C cup. The piece hooks up the back.
The condition is nice . It is wearable and sturdy . Besides a few hanging threads on beading I see nothing else to mention.
