An Edwardian heavily beaded bodice on tulle. This beautiful piece is ready for your next project. Not perfect, but a good piece for over 100 years old. Lots of good beading to work with if you wish to adapt it. It could be worn but will need some of the larger beads in particular secured. Due to the age and weight of the French jet beads, in particular the various larger nailheads, it would be best to back with modern tulle. There are hooks and eyes at the back - the top eye is missing. A scatte Bodice, Tulle, Hooks, Beaded Bodice, Edwardian, 1900s, Worn, Gorgeous Necklaces, Vintage Outfits

An Edwardian heavily beaded bodice on tulle. This beautiful piece is ready for your next project. Not perfect, but a good piece for over 100 years old. Lots of good beading to work with if you wish to adapt it. It could be worn but will need some of the larger beads in particular secured. Due to the age and weight of the French jet beads, in particular the various larger nailheads, it would be best to back with modern tulle. There are hooks and eyes at the back - the top eye is missing. A scattering of small holes in the tulle but it does not appear to be weak. Some of the diamonds have a missing central bead - I would either remove the remaining or even them out across the design.
Measurements:
33 inches across the bust area
11 inches from the top of the straps to the hem
