1878 Long Draped Victorian Overskirt by Truly Victorian
This overskirt is drafted based on an actual garment as seen in Harper's Bazaar magazine. The front hangs in low swags, and is held into the tie-back position with tapes. The back is left to hang in low swags. The closure is in the left side back seam. If desired, this overskirt can be also be sewn into the side seams of underskirt TV221 to create a single double layered skirt. This overskirt is suitable for just about everything during the period of 1878-1883 (Natural Form Era - No Bustle). It can be left plain for day wear, or elaborately trimmed for evening. This pattern works best with a crisp, less drapey fabric.

This is a heavy paper pattern with 4 pieces. The instructions seem simple to follow and are well illustrated. There is also a page of trimming suggestions.

This is a multi-sized pattern which includes waist sizes 20-46 and hip sizes 30-56 in one package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
