This is a downloadable pattern that you can print at home, on your standard printer with Letter/A4 size paper or at a professional printer, like Kinkos.
This is a polonaise with a basque back, i.e. the back has an upper bodice section overlapping a lower section with poufs. The front buttons to the waist and then falls open into two points, with pleats at the sides. As an option, the buttons can be extended down the front to give a round apron effect. This style was very popular in the early 1870's. The sleeve is a full length pleated bell. Two neckline options are given. This pattern is recommended for intermediate to advanced sewers.
Our patterns are drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1870's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled. All of the bodice seams are true to the era, and it is designed to fit snugly over a corset.
