|1863 Civil War Ball Gown Bodice by Past
A princess seam construction makes this bodice easy to fit and sew.
Many women were married in their best dress. If their best dress was
a ball gown they would probably have worn it to their wedding. The
puff sleeve with bows or the bell sleeve change the bodice from
fancy to tailored. The bodice closes and fastens in the back with
lace that is drawn through eyelets. The bodice is boned. The point
may be made shorter without changing the overall look.
includes bust sizes 32.5-48, waistsizes 24.5-40 and hip sizes
34.5-50 all in one
package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and
