Sheer Net Shirtwaist

Sheer Net Shirtwaist
C.1907. This shirtwaist is very special as its made completely out of netting. It would have been worn over a plain silk shirtwaist to add contrast and texture to it. It was probably worn on special occasions by someone who couldn't afford to buy a new outfit, so they would liven up something they already had with this.
Machine sewn and has little embroidered swirls on the net. Fastens at the back with hook 'n eyes. Measurements: Neck 14", Shoulders 16", Bust measures 43" but would fit a bust of about 38" to 40", Waist 30".
