1850s/ 1860s Cotton Lace Garibaldi Blouse

This is my 1850s/ 1860s white cotton Garibaldi blouse. The blouse is inspired by antique Garibaldi blouses, such as this 1860s and this 1865 blouse. And here’s a photograph of a lady wearing a white cotton Garibaldi blouse.

For the blouse I’ve used white cotton cambric, white cotton lace fabric, and white cotton bobbin lace.

It’s machine sewn. I had just a bit of the lace fabric left, which I’ve used for the sleeves.
