Vintage Vests

Misses Sizes 6-16     Men's Chest 36-44

Victorian gentlemen at the end of the 1800s needed a vest or waistcoat to be considered well-dressed, and smart Victorian women often paired vests with walking skirts for street wear.  Our vests offer a variety of stylings, including collarless V-neck, bias-cut vest with shawl collar, and short front-darted style.  Traditional bow tie, with instructions for tying, is also included.



A Lady's Chemise

Both versions of our flattering chemise have short gathered and ruffled cap sleeves and can be cut low knee-length or at the hip to be worn as a blouse.  Delicate pleats accent the center front and back of the neckline, which is adjustable with ribbon drawstrings.  The neckline of View A drops just off the shoulder and uses purchased eyelet beading and lace or eyelet ruffles at neckline and sleeve.  The neckline of View B sits on the shoulder and features a self-fabric ruffle and casing for the ribbon drawstring.  Instructions and alphabet designs for a Victorian monogram are included.
