Historical Sewing Patterns (Women)

1896 Plain Bodice

1896 Plain Bodice

This is a basic fitted bodice for the mid 1890's. Short over the side hip, it has a short point at center front and center back. It has a center front hook/eye closure, military collar, and fitted sleeves with 2 puff variations. It also has an optional brettelle, wide over the shoulder, and tapering at the center front and center back.

This pattern is very pretty made up as is, or can be used as a base to add more elaborate trimmings. The sleeve puffs are suitable for sleeves of 1893-1897, and without the puffs can suit 1890-93 or 1897-99.
