1856 Gathered Dress

1856 Gathered Dress

This pattern is for an 1856 dress, designed from fashion plates and original garments of the pre-civil war era. This style is suitable for the years 1855-1862, and fits over TV141 round hoop. It has a gathered Fan Front bodice, with a fitted lining and a gathered back. The deep V neckline can be filled in with a chemisette, or left open for a dinner dress.

The full gathered sleeve has a fitted upper section and dropped shoulder line. The bodice reaches to the waist at the back and sides, with a shallow point in front. The bodice can also be made plain, if desired. A full skirt is attached to the bodice, or can be sewn to a separate waistband. The closure is in the center front, with hooks and eyes.
