Vintage Edwardian Ruffle Front Cotton Blouse

What a beautiful early 1900s blouse!  Lightweight, sheer cotton with a small black circle print.  A large ruffle hides the front button placket.  Pintucks over the shoulders.  The 3/4 length sleeves are also trimmed with ruffles.  There is an attached belt that buttons in the front.  We weren't able to button the top button on the dress form, but the blouse looks great (more relaxed) with the top unbuttoned.  The collar has button holes for an attachable collar.

NOTE: this lovely blouse may require your favorite vintage camisole.
