TV261 - 1885 Four-Gore Underskirt

This skirt is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1880's. It can be made flat in back, to be worn with an either with an overskirt or polonaise, or with the back bouffant and the front decorated. The skirt is flat in front with gathers or pleats in back, with the extra fullness shifted to the back. It has the three front gores and full width in back that were popular at that time. The placket is in the left side back seam. An optional 6" ruffle can be added to the hem.

This skirt is suitable for just about everything during the period of 1883-1889. It can be left plain for day wear, or elaborately trimmed for evening. Mix and match overskirts for different looks. This pattern also can be used for petticoats.

REVISED EDITION - Now comes in larger sizing, and with more sizing options. Also, the ruffle has been reduced to the narrow ruffle that was popular during the Late Bustle period.

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