This bodice has a low round neck perfect for evening events. The waist is extended for the late 1880s-early 1890s style. The sleeves are a pouf gathered into the middle for a stylish effect. The bodice can also be left sleeveless. This closure is in the center back, either buttons or hook and eyes.
The bodice is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the late Victorian era. 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.
