1830-50 Lady's Chemise, 111.2000.42this one at the Met Museum..tho theirs is of coarse presented on a better form than mine. Family provenance dates this piece to the 1830's, and we all know how horribly mixed up family provenances can be....but upon inspecting the details, I really do think it is that early....so lets look at all those great details!
The yoke is shaped into wonderful points over the shoulders
I left this picture large, so you can appreciate the expertly placed stitches~ this is a view of the inside of one of the side seams, at the hem.
I hope you enjoyed this Museum Monday. Feel free to pick a number and leave in the comments below for a chance to be chosen for next weeks Museum Monday!
