Curator Notes

Poor condition. Moth holes scattered throughout. Staining all over bodice. Closures missing underneath bow at neckline. Right sleeve has been damaged at the armscye. Repair has caused the shoulder cap to be uneven. The silk ruffles at the edges of the sleeves are damaged. The right sleeve is missing its buttons. The front seams show evidence of being let out to possibly accommodate the growth of the wearer. A bustle has been added to provide proper silhouette.
