This style is particularly suited to 1878 - 1882, and is perfect for dinner and evening events. The neckline is high at the neck in back and cut in a low diamond in front. A small half collar is optional. The bodice is cuirass length in front and has a longer square "tail" in back. The fitted sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full- or 3/4-length.

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 true to the era. This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset, without a bustle.
