|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
