Great blouse
I love the blouse. The body fits great. I only have two small issues to address for me personally. The blouse is a little too long but I plan to have that altered. Also, the cuffs are a bit loose and allow the cuffs to cover my hand. I have small wrists and it has nothing to do with the quality of the merchandise. I will have my alterations lady move the buttons over just about one inch and the blouse will be perfect. Please don't consider this a negative because I realize that every size, whether small, medium, large, etc. is meant to fit a wide variety of body types. Many of my clothes need to be altered because I have a short upper body and short arms. Thank you for a well constructed product and fast delivery. I know I will enjoy my blouse for years to come.

Great Quality
I do like very much this blouse, except, the sleeve length, I have a M and a L size. I compared the blouses, found the sleeve lengths are the same. I bought the L for two reasons, the sleeve length and the fullness of the body. The fullness of the body is good in the L size. but the length of the sleeve, I needed a 1/2 inches or a bit longer. They fabric is great, and the design goes with several of my costumes. I just thought you would like to know.

I purchased this pinstripe blouse and the matching skirt for an upcoming event in my hometown. The event requires us to have on traditional looking 1850's clothing. This outfit is fashioned perfectly for the time period, very well made and fit true to size. I am so impressed and felt the price was great for the quality I received.

Adjusted Satisfaction
Beautiful Blouse! Pay attention to fit. I had to return this blouse and order the next size up, which I did because once it arrived and I saw it in person, I had to have it! Very well made and just a gorgeous design. Extremely flattering. I ordered a size L using the bust measurement in the fit chart and the blouse did fit, but the neck was uncomfortably snug and the sleeves a tad short. The next size up, XL, gave me the length in the sleeves I needed (I will be working a box office while wearing it) and more comfort in the neck. There is more room in the bust area, but as I am tucking it into my skirt it will tailor visually. So by all means buy this blouse, but take these comments into mind if you are lengthy in the limbs to avoid paying return shipping.

Classic Gibson - White
I love the style of the Gibson blouse, however, I returned it. I purchased two different styles of blouses and returned this one. I usually wear a "small" size. I ordered both blouses in the size "medium". For me, the neckline and cuffs on the Gibson blouse were too tight. I would recommend ordering one size larger. The fabric on the Gibson Blouse was a lighter weight than I expected. I kept the other blouse and enjoy wearing it. Historical Emporium accepted my return of the Gibson Blouse. I will be ordering from them again.

Tight collar and cuffs
This is a quality product with great construction and material. This will be a great basic for many historical costume events. The shipping was fast and it was nicely packaged. I bought a large based on the sizing chart and the body fits perfectly but the neck and cuffs are meant to fit close and these dimensions should be part of the sizing chart. Also the length of the arm. I found the arms a bit short and the neck and cuffs a bit tight. It is wearable but I would have sized up if I had seen those measurements in advance.

This was my first order with HE, sort of a "test balloon," and it went perfectly. The description warned that the blouses ran a bit small, so if in doubt, order up a size, and I did. Perfect fit. The event for which I need the blouse isn't until October, so I will be doing some more shopping!

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.

Abbington blouse
Nice white blouse with pretty lace detail
Oct 20, 2022

Ouch!
This beautiful blouse is lined with the scratchiest sleeve heads (to make the sleeves stand out.) They are so abrasive that they made red welts on my shoulders. Fortunately, I was able to cover the raw edge of the sleeve head with some bias tape. Now the blouse is as comfortable as it is beautiful. The fabric is very good quality and in the workmanship other than the sleeve heads is excellent. The fit is mostly as specified. The cuffs on the sleeves are a bit peculiar in that they are cylindrical in shape rather than tapering toward the wrist. I can set over the buttons to make them look right, but the forearm is not cylindrical in shape and the long cuffs should not be either.

This blouse arrived quickly & was packaged well. It's beautiful & I received many compliments when I wore it as part of my Edwardian outfit in a parade. The only reason I had to give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that the stitching inside the shoulders is very scratchy.

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.

Beautiful!
Beautiful blouse, fits so good! Great fabric and workmanship. The only cons is pricky material used in shoulder wings which hold puff sleeves. If the makers would manage turn the ends of the netting they used there not to the human size, but to the top side of the sleeve, the blouse would be perfect. I solved the problem adding extra fabric layer over pricky piece and it worked.

Love it with one exception
I love the blouse. I love the color and the addition of small pleats across front. It wears well and looks lovely. My only concern is when comparing it to my other, same sized blouse purchased from you, this one is not as roomy across the bust line. I imagine the addition of the pleats gathered some of the looseness found in other style.

I have a white blouse from this company in size medium that fits perfectly. I ordered this one in medium as well but it runs larger. If I'd tried it on, I would probably have purchased a small. Also I didn't care for the white trim at the cuffs and collar so I removed it. The blouse is of excellent weight material and well finished and made.

Perfect for living history
I own this blouse in several colors because it is so nice to wear a Victorian style that does not need to be tucked in and/or added waist cover (gives me an effortless, feminine silhouette). It is made of a thick, durable cotton that is comfortable to wear and even the puffy sleeves hold up very well with repeated machine washings. I'm more of a small size fit but due to the snug forearm/wrist tailoring, I prefer wearing a size medium. Excellent purchase!

Fit is problematic
I kept this blouse because I generally like the style, but it could definitely be better. According to the sizing chart I would take an XS. I purchased both an XS and S just to compare. Pay attention to the stated cuff measurement and realize that that has to fit over not only your wrist, but entire forearm as well! I have very scrawny arms, and I couldn't fully button the XS. The cut of the collar is also slightly uncomfortable. Although I can fit several fingers between the collar and my neck, it fits so that it kind of chokes in the front and gaps in the back. The body of the blouse fits well on my flat-chested frame. I'm also not looking forward to ironing this.

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!

High Quality
The quality of this blouse is very good. It's a true cream/ivory. The bust size was accurate. I will add that the wrist size is enormous and most will have to take it in on that larger size. A minor bit of sewing skill required to simply move the buttons to size no problem. I do recommend this blouse for reenactments, cosplay, EGL, and if you want to feel fancy!

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.

Beautiful and Well-Made!
I bought this blouse as a present for my period-clothing-obsessed daughter's fifteenth birthday. She LOVES it. 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.

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!

Nice Blouse
Great fit and comfortable as well. It will go with two different skirts and can be changed around for a different look.

I returned this Blouse to you as it was not exactly what I was looking for. I desire a button-up-the-back with high stand-up collar, long-sleeved blouse and in white and another in black. (No ruffles or lace). The fronts of the desired blouses may have a raised "emblem" type design resting under the collar but be no lower than between the breast area.

Perfect fit
I love this blouse. It is perfect!!! The only minor altetation was to re-set buttons on sleeves to get tighter fit. Otherwise, the blouse is perfect for my purpose.

Beautiful!
This blouse is beautiful! The fabric is high quality and the details are perfect. I bought this to wear with a long skirt as Mrs. Santa Claus. I think the measurements for the blouse are accurate but be sure to measure! I only wear a size 18 but had to order a 3X for the bust measurement.

Beautiful Blouse! It fits very well and the quality is superior. I have not washed it yet but even if it shrinks a bit the gathers across the back of the shoulders will ensure it will still fit. My husband and I are a professional Santa and Mrs. Claus team and entertain at Christmas events. I bought the blouse, along with the dark green Evelyn skirt, for my Mrs. Claus outfit. It looks great with a red Christmas apron and my other accessories. When I wore it for a "practice run" all our family and friends said "WOW" .

This is so pretty and not too frilly. I am large busted and it doesn't emphasize that. Will look good with jeans or a riding skirt. The material is high quality and the eyelet adds a lovely feminine touch. It does run slightly generous so I washed it once and that helped. Also the cuffs are large; my wrists are small and I may take up the seam just a little.

Love the lace!
I found this blouse to be beautiful, soft, well-constructed and comfortable to wear. I was looking for something with a bit more unstructured fit, and this is perfect. It accommodates my DD chest and looks attractive without being too big. The collar and cuffs are fitted without being tight. It is so perfect with the twill bustle skirt!

Beautiful blouse with lovely lace accents. Sleeves are too long for my petite frame. Will have to alter. Generous sizing due to style, but true to measurements listed.

I needed a victorian era blouse to wear with a skirt I already had. This fit the bill. I wore it last week to an event and had several compliments. The fit was good. The shipping was good.

Lovely blouse
This blouse is very nicely made and fits like a dream. I haven't washed it yet, and I'm hoping it won't need too much ironing... But for now it's perfect. A great addition to my early 1900s wardrobe.

Crisp, smart blouse
This was my first purchase from the Emporium, after browsing and coveting for a long time. I needed a new blouse to replace my old favorite one: I wanted a white blouse that was feminine without being overly fussy, was short-sleeved, and had detailing that could work for a steampunk ensemble or modern work attire. This fit the bill perfectly! The sizing chart was accurate, and the blouse fits me well. The fabric is sturdy but still lightweight, without being overly sheer like too many women's blouses are nowadays. Shipping was timely, too. I definitely will make more purchases in the future!

Abbington Blouse
The blouse is a lovely fabric with elegant lace trim very comfortable to wear. As I like to wear my blouse over my skirt, a tapering design at the back, might have been an added feature enabling it to be worn inside or out side the skirt giving more costume options. There are two features that I would have liked: 1. another button in the collar to hold the collar more correctly 2. better button placement in the breast area so it doesn't open at the bra! Other than those comments, I feel it to be a good period blouse suited to many outfits.

BEAUTIFUL!!!
I love this blouse! It is better made than most of the clothes you see these days - and the result is absolutely beautiful. I bought a really large size (2xl) because I have fairly large "girls" and figured I could shrink it if it was over the top (100% good cotton), and that's exactly what I did. The sleeves were still a little long so, unfortunately, even though they are sooooo pretty, I cuffed them. That works fine and it is still something to treasure. So if you don't want to shrink yours, be sure to use cold water and line dry! I love this so much and since we are taking our show on the road next year, I will buying 1 or 2 more for backup.

This is such a beautiful blouse. Went great with my skirt. I put a very old horses head pin on the collar and it looked super!! Very authentic to the time period!

This is a pretty blouse and I actually ordered it first, and returned it, from another company. The problem, imo, is that the base color has a slight yellowish cast to it when compared to the lace material, which is more ecru. Normally I am not fussy, but yellow is not a good color on me. Nonetheless, I kept it since the problem appears to occur across varying suppliers.

I found this blouse to be beautifully made from quality products. The fit around was just perfect, but have to say that the sleeves were far too long! Still, I am really pleased with it and will be wearing this regularly.

I bought this to wear to a Civil War reenactment. It is absolutely perfect! I handmade a skirt and jacket, and bought the blouse to go under the jacket. It is so pretty and authentic that I will be able to wear it with just the skirt and look just as good!

Very nice blouse!
Very nice blouse. I'm typically between a Medium and a Large. I ordered a Large to avoid any chance of the buttons pulling at the breast-line (my problem area). The Large is probably a bit larger than I needed, but nothing a good hot wash and a hot dry couldn't fix. Love the blouse. Great quality.
