Mid 19th C Woman’s Bodice

This is yet another humble and simple woman’s piece of clothing out of my collection.

Fashioned out of a heavy natural cotton flannel, it is entirely hand-sewn.  Measuring 19 inches in length and 11 inches across the shoulders, it is in very good condition with some wear attendant with age and use.  There are 4 small holes on the front and a fine cotton panel insert along the shoulders. The 4 glass button closures appear to be original to the piece.  There is some foxing of the fabric along the neckline, but the fabric is strong and supple and shows no signs of weakness.

This is another one of those pieces that I have held near and dear to my heart.  This was an everyday piece that tells a story by its look: worn around the farm – toiled in, sung in, rejoiced in.  Found in Lancaster County, PA, it is time to pass it on so that others may hear and feel its song!
