This bodice is designed after a style shown in an 1883 Harper's Bazaar magazine. This style was also popular in the later 1880's and 1890's, as well. The front of this bodice has a point and the sides extend past the waist. The back and side-back have "tails" that lay in double box pleats, giving the classic "waterfall" style The sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full- or 3/4-length. There is a full mandarin collar for the high neck, and a half collar for the open neck variation.

This pattern is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1880's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled, with all of the seams true to the era. This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset, and over a bustle.

Truly Victorian patterns are printed on paper (not tissue) and come with full instructions. This pattern is multi-sized and contains sizes to fit from a 56cm to a 107cm waist.
