TV491 - 1893 Blouse Waist


Not rated yet

This is a basic gathered Blouse Waist, which was popular in 1893. It has a gathered front and back, with a fitted lining. The center front is cut on the straight of grain, for use with plaids and stripes. The sleeve is the Balloon Sleeve, popular in 1893-94, and has a fitted lining. The Jabot is removable. The gathered blouse waist style was popular from the 1880s, and with a different sleeve, can easily be adapted to the late bustle era. Or, left sleeveless, it can be used effectively as a "vest" for wear under jackets for an 1880-1900 look.

The blouse is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1890's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled. All of the blouse seams are true to the era, and it is designed to fit over a corset.
