1841-1847 Fan-Front Dress Bodice Sewing Pattern
1841-1847 Fan-Front Dress Bodice Sewing Pattern by Past Patterns
This fan-front bodice and single skirt were fashionable between 1841-1847. It may also be worn as an 1850s gown because daguerreotypes abound of women wearing the fan-front bodice in the 1850s.The illusion of a small waist is created with tucks at the shoulders which are drawn into shirring at the center front waist. The fullness at the center front waist may be fashioned into pleats.
The bodice is mounted on a form fitting lining. The lining alone may be used as a pattern for a popular variation from the fan-front. The long form fitting sleeves may be made with or without a cap. The bodice is lightly boned and closes in the back with hooks and eyes.
Multi-sized pattern includes bust sizes 32.5-48, waist sizes 24.5-40 and hip sizes 34.5-50, with cup sizes B, C and D, all in one package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
