Edwardian White Cotton Wide Collar Dickie, Free Size
Beautiful antique white cotton dickie, which I believe dates to the Edwardian era, with decorative front buttons a lovely wide collar. These are designed to go under dresses, jumpers and jackets to give you the look of wearing a shirt, without the bulk of the fabric underneath. It also saved laundering a full shirt! These are a great invention, comfortable and smart and so easy to slip on.
• Decorative perforations to the collar and bust
• Wide collar with V-neck
• Small shell buttons to the front
• Length hits the natural waistline
• Elasticated bottom - I have replaced the elastic so it is very stretchy
• Back is made from a very light cotton, similar to shirt material, and the front and collar is made from a ribber mid-weight cotton
• There are a couple of rust spots on the blouse, one spot to the shoulder under the collar, one light one on the collar, one to the bottom of the front panel, and a couple to the back on the shoulder and the bottom. These are all shown, but would not be seen if worn under a jumper or dress
• Care/composition: no labels
Front panel width: 12in
Back panel width: 9.5in
