Vintage Ruffled Shirt with Handmade BroochesSOLD LOTS of Brooches! This ruffled shirt comes with dozens of handmade Brooches. The seamstress made the shirt with a heavy red fabric. He or she added a ruffled collar and small ruffles at the cuffs. The shirt displays a multitude of German Silver Brooches. At the front center, you will see a large 7 inch diameter brooch. All along the ruffled shoulder piece, you will see several 1.5 inch diameter brooches in a variety of designs. Closer to the ruffle edge, the crafter attached two rows of handmade 1/2 inch diameter Washer Brooches and two rows of 3/8 inch brass colored spots. More spots appear on the back of the collar by the neck opening. You will also see them attached to the cuffs of the shirt. The crafter used antique buttons on the cuffs and at the front neck opening.
This shirt is small. It measures 20 inches long from neck to hem and 22 inches wide across the front. The neck opening measures 8.5 inches wide. The sleeves measure 21.5 inches long with 4 inch wide cuffs. The shirt itself is in good condition. You will see places where someone removed a few of the 1.5 inch brooches. Because these brooches are handmade, the pins are very sharp. Please take care when handling this shirt. One of a Kind!
