Ada's Victorian Ruffle Blouse
In her mother’s attempt to educate the “madness” and “insanity” of creativity out of young Augusta Ada Byron (yes, the child of that Lord Byron, whom he sadly abandoned and never knew), Ada learned mathematical theorems at the tender age of ten.
Poetry was strictly forbidden, but Ada found other ways to create.
Charles Babbage, the godfather of computer science, called her the “enchantress of numbers.”
Yes, there were a few amorous exploits, including some scandalous ones, but much of her myth is just that—myth.
Her friend, the incomparable battlefield nurse Florence Nightingale, once said it was her “vitality of the brain” that set her apart.
Ada’s Victorian Ruffle Blouse (No. 5768). For the extremely thoughtful and romantic. Cotton poplin with a hint of spandex for stretch. Vintage-inspired scalloped lace at collar, ruffles, and sleeve cuff edge. Cuffs are stitched from three different lace patterns. Four self- fabric-covered buttons with loop closure at front. French-seam finishes. Worthy of memorization. Imported.
Pairs well with Glamour Pants.
