TV420 - 1879 Cuirass Bodice with Evening Options

This bodice is high necked for day wear or can be cut into a low square neck for evening events. The front can be either straight across or rounded in front and back. This style is particularly suited to 1878 - 1882. The fitted sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full- or 3/4-length. The ball gown sleeve is a small pouf.

The bodice is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1870's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled, with all of the bodice seams are true to the era. This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset, without a bustle.

This pattern is now also avialable as an E-Pattern.   Go to E-Pattern listing.
