I can't get over how this blouse fits. I just love it from the cuff length, and the buttons, to the neck fit! I was surprised to see the beautiful tone on tone paisley print. Such quality. I will definately be purchasing more.

sexy and slimming!
The blouse it's sexy, slimming, interesting, and comfortable. The fabric wrinkles easily, and something high-waisted should be worn on the bottom half, but it is solidly built, and not terribly sheer. As always,I find, with this company, the clothes are true to size. Love this sort, love this site!

I wore this blouse for an 1894 costume while attending a Victorian Garden Party. It was perfect. The fit was just as expected. It is well-made. If you need a blouse like this, you can't go wrong getting this one.

Wish it came in different fabrics
I love this shirt! The only drawback is that it is 100% cotton, so it requires ironing. (Good for authenticity; not good for regular wear.) It would be nice if some of the clothing had "easy care" fabric-blend options.

Beautiful Blouse
This is a beautiful blouse but the fit was off on me. It gapped at the bust& the shoulders were a smidge too small but the sleeves were too long. Again, a lovely, well made blouse but just didnít fit my athletic body type which is the ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars & not 5.

Abbington Blouse
This blouse was pretty true to size, but did shrink slightly in the cold water wash, which was great for me. The blouse needs to be a bit more fitted, but a few darts will solve the problem, as wearing a corset gives it much more structure and period authenticity. The blouse would be even greater if it was lined, as the material allows the corset to show, so must wear a corset cover. Overall, I love this blouse!

Beautiful but sizing all wrong
I was amazed at how beautiful this blouset was. The details and workmanship were just wonderful. There were two problems though. I had to get a 2XL based on the measurement chart. I have never been even close to 2XL in my life. I would probably get the 1XL size for a blouse from Historical Emporium next time I order and I will buy again. But this blouse fits fine. I swear that the sleeves were the length of an orangutan's arms. I had to cut 4-5 inches off of them. Luckily I can sew and the sleeves/cuffs were sewn on in such a manner that the sleeve was easily separated from the cuff, sleeve shortened, and sewed back so that you can not tell that the cuff was ever touched. I am 5'6" and have a normal arm length. I think someone who is shorter than I, but still fits the sizing, will have a much bigger problem. Note that I had the same problem, and will be making this same comment, on the Tabitha outfit. I hope HE can correct this sizing problem. I may not always be able to accommodate the construction changes that will probably be necessary. Good thing I sew well, just to lazy to make my own outfits.

This blouse is way more beautiful in person than in the catalog. The sleeves are quite puffy at the shoulders and so very 'period perfect'. The fabric has substance without being stiff. The cut is spot-on and fits like a dream. You won't be disappointed with this choice. The fit seems very true to the size measurements given.

I bought this blouse and the matching skirt primarily to wear volunteering at a local old ranch house that has a program for third grade classes to show them what life was like in 1906. I wore it today for the first time to portray a suffragette at a Women's March. I got a lot of compliments on the whole ensemble. The blouse is very well made. I bought a medium and it seems true to size. I did have to move the top button at the neck out a wee bit as it was a bit tight. Other than that tiny thing, I am quite pleased and know that I will look for any excuse to wear this skirt and blouse!

Very pleased with quality and style of the pinstripe blouse. It was too snug in the cuffs and shoulder so I placed a new order for a larger size and received it within three days. Contacted your return department about returning the smaller blouse and they were extremely prompt and helpful. After getting my first order, I was so pleased that I add a belt to my reorder of the blouse. It has been a pleasure to shop with Historical Emporium.

Nice Blouse
I like the fabric and the design on this blouse. I believe the size likely fits fairly true to form around the bust area. The sleeves are fairly long, but the button cuffs will help. I have thinner wrists than some, and usually wear a petite size, so I will have to move the buttons on the sleeves to make them fit properly so the cuffs won't hang down over my hands. I purchased the blouse to wear with a ruffle bustle skirt and they look great together! I purchased the ivory color and it is quite nice. If the sleeves weren't so long I would have given this blouse 5 stars. The fabric is nice and I am sure I will get years of entertainment wearing this outfit from the Historical Emporium.

I like the Jenny blouse very much. The subtle white on white-with-a-tiny-hint-of-lavender is so attractive. The only adjustment I had to make was to narrow the cuffs by moving the buttons in. But that wasn't a hard fix.

The quality of materials, styling, and workmanship are all superb on this blouse. I saw that different garments you offer can have quite different measurements for the various sizes. I needed a true "small" so that was a concern for me. Using comments as well as the size chart, I found the perfect fit. I'm 100% pleased with the product and your service.

Just what I wanted.
This the perfect all around Victorian white blouse. I bought it because it is simple and elegant. I can add jewelry to embellish. I ordered a size large, even though I normally wear a medium. Having ordered a blouse from this site previously, I knew it tends to run a bit small. I am 5'5", 140 lbs. I love that it doesn't have to be tucked in but still defines the waist area. It is well made with good fabric weight and quality. Wish I didn't have to iron it but guess it's easier than what the Victorians had to go through!

Definitely true to it's picture, the shirt is perfect for the look I'm going for. Unfortunately I'm not built to fit most women's clothing so it doesn't quite fit across my shoulders, or make room for the length of my arms. I'm going to wear it proudly but will have to be careful about raising my arms, lol.

I absolutely LOVE this shirtwaist. I am tall and it fits like a dream. The quality of the cotton was much, much better than I expected. I like to make my own costumes but now I think that sometimes I will most certainly order from this company, instead. So pleased! A little suggestion? Can you offer more prints in a style like this? Small flowers or perhaps stripes for Gibson Girl costumes?

Cleans up like a charm
After I read the other reviews, I ordered this a bit large. It fit nicely, with the only problem being that it was a bit long in the waist for me (I'm 5' 3" so this is a common problem for me). The thin fabric is actually an advantage in black - there is no show through and it makes a great layering piece. But the real charm of this shirt is how well it goes through the washer and dryer - no shrinkage and it comes out as if it just had a date with the iron.

Not a great fit
The construction of the shirt, the fabric, cut, and so forth are amazing. However, the sleeves are too short for my arms, leaving me with limited arm mobility when the cuffs are buttoned. Other than that, I love it. If you have long arms (I'm 6 feet tall), this may not be a great shirt for you completely buttoned. However, it's wearable, and it is a beautiful, well made shirt.

Pleased
I ordered conveniently online and was surprised when I received my classic Gibson girl blouse in the mail. This is to be my first order. The blouse is white with a high color and long cuffs and buttons down the front. The cotton material is soft. The fit was Perfect. I wash all my whites separate as to not discolor them. I did not have problems with shrinking as I kept my dryer on casual setting. It is the perfect shirt for my job. I work at an outside museum and have to revert back in time to the 19th century in period clothing. We interpret a kitchen, parlor, bedroom, and laundry room as well as the school house. This blouse transitions very well. During 19th century laundry and baking interpretations I roll the sleeves up and unbutton top button. When working the school house, toys, and parlor, I leave the cuffs buttoned up and I include a broach at the center of the collar to appear far more reserved. I get two different characters with one blouse! I was so happy with my purchase that I ordered a Muriel pleated blouse as well. These clothes we wear at the museum represent American industry workers and their families in the 19th century. Thank you.

Loved this blouse! The workmanship is incredible, and it's 100% cotton! According to the size chart, I was between sizes, so I ordered the larger size. The only indication was that the neck was a bit just a little loose, but it did not detract from the look at all. The sleeves were a perfect length. I augmented the sleeves with a bit of crinoline to get the look I wanted. Several ladies asked where I got my outfit. Because I'm 6' tall, I made the skirt and underpinnings; however, I was happy to refer them to Historical Emporium for an outfit from head to toe.

Pretty
Needed a more formal blouse to go with a fancy Wash Day bustle skirt I sewed. This fit the bill perfectly. Well made, but fits quite snug in the bust while having almost hilariously long sleeves. Luckily a wash shrunk the cotton enough so that I did not need to alter the sleeves to make wearing feasible. Shoulder area fits per size. Next time I will order up a size. Lace is very pretty, love the ribbon detail on the sleeves, I got lots of compliments and your blouse ended up on the front page of the local paper!

Be very careful when ordering blouses. Each item has its own sizing chart, based on your fullest chest measurement. For those of us who are not the average, the sizing requires that we buy a blouse that is sized much larger than the mainstream clothing brands. As the size of the blouse increases, so do the shoulder, waist and sleeve length. In my case, I usually wear a medium, or perhaps a large blouse, and can have it in petite to fit my 5'4" frame. For this blouse I needed an XL to fit my chest, but then had to hire a seamstress to take up the sleeves and pull in the shoulder seams. My $60 blouse now costs me $90!

Lovely blouse, but too small
I ordered this blouse for a special event in which I had a time deadline. When I received the blouse I was totally in love with the look, the design and the quality. Unfortunately, the size was a problem. I normally always wear a medium in a blouse. This blouse was considerably smaller than the mediums that I have purchased in the past. Due to a deadline, I was unable to return the blouse for a larger size. I opted for a bit of my own tailoring. I let out the front darts and found it wearable. I was so sorry about the fit, otherwise I would have given the blouse 5 stars.

The styling is beautiful and comfortable (the medium is a *tiny* bit tight on her 34C/D chest, but the ruffling hides that), and the blouse seems to be quite well-made. As a busy mom, I love that it's machine washable. I got this to go with the Victorian Walking Skirt in navy (also a birthday present for her), and they look lovely together. If you're looking for a Victorian-style blouse, this is a great choice.

This is a beautifully hand crafted blouse. Very high quality. And worth every penny. My costume is now complete and authentic.

Historic Portrayal
I used this blouse in a portrayal of Mrs. Benjamin Harrison, wife of the 23rd President of the US, at historic Berkeley Plantation on the James River in Virginia, the Harrison's ancestal home. Although this blouse was in the "western" collection, it worked well as a "day dress" ensemble worn when at home. Paired with a patterned black velvet skirt, cameo and shawl, it was the hit of the day!

Well Made
I am very happy with this blouse. It is. Well mad. E of quality cotton. It presses up beautifully. I would highly recommend the blouse for any time you want to change up your wardrobe with a classic.

I really love this blouse. Fit is a little snug but I will wash in cool water to reduce shrinkage. Tina Texas
