This bodice is high necked for day wear, or can be cut a low square neck for evening events. The hem can be either straight across, or cut into the pointed extended waist popular in the 1880's. This style is particularly suited to 1883-1889, with the shoulder cut higher up than the earlier eras. The small mutton sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full- or 3/4-length. The ball gown sleeve is a small pouf.

Our bodices are drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1880's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled, with all of the seams true to the era. This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset, and over a moderate sized bustle.
