1896 Ripple Bodice

1896 Ripple Bodice

This is a very stylish, fitted jacket with a very wide notched lapel, and a flared hip. It can have one of two different closures, either 3 bands or a faux vest to hold it close to the figure. The band fits onto buttons on the front of the jacket, while the faux vest would have the buttons fitting button holes on the jacket. The main body is in four pieces for a good fit: Back, Side Back, and Front. The front is fitted with a single dart. The moderate sleeve is in two pieces, fitted to the elbow and with a full sleeve head. A contrasting lining fabric is visible at the lapel and hip ripples.

With the sleeve as given, this style is suitable for 1893-1898. By changing to the larger sleeves of pattern TV495, this jacket can also be perfect for 1894-1896. This is the perfect companion jacket to skirt TV296 - 1896 Ripple Skirt. For a dressy evening or summer style, make up the jacket without sleeves (like a vest), and wear with a short sleeved blouse.
