We are back from a lovely break, thank you for your patience.
Looking forward to an Autumn of costume and corset making fun!
Our 1886 Evening Bodice is suitable for the years 1885 - 1889. The front of this bodice has an over front with pleats on the shoulder and gathered at the ribs, and opens over the fitted under bodice at the center front. Below the gathers, a separate "vest" sews into the front dart, and can be made in the same, or a contrasting fabric.
The under bodice has a rounded neckline, with narrow shoulder straps. The front waist is pointed, and the sides curve upward over the hip. The bodice back has a "bow" that is created by extended Side Back pieces that pleat high up at the center back, and attach to the Center Back point with ties.. The closure is in the center back with grommets and lacing. The sleeve is a small evening sleeve with pleats at the top of the armhole.
This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset, and over any sized bustle.
