TV403 - 1872 Vested Bodice


Not rated yet

This bodice is taken from the 1872 Butterick Pattern Catalog.  The main highlight is the layered front; with a vest and outer Jacket layer.  The vest is high necked with a shallow point at the waist, and buttons down the center front. The "jacket" closes with 2 buttons at the waist, and folds over in lapels both above and below the waist.  The vest is sewn to the bodice proper at the side and shoulder seams, and at the armhole.   The fitted sleeve is in 2 pieces, and widens dramatically at the wrist.  The basque is split at the center back and the side seams, below the waist, to allow room for any sized bustle.

The bodice is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1870’s, adjusted to fit the modern body.  All of the bodice seams are true to the era, and it is designed to fit snugly over a corset.
