1886 Bordered Asymmetrical Overskirt Sewing Pattern
1886 Bordered Asymmetrical Overskirt Sewing Pattern by Truly Victorian
Asymmetrical styles were very fashionable in the 1880's, as was the use of bordered laces and fabrics. This pattern combines the two elements beautifully. The apron starts with the border high on the left hip, and falls in graceful folds to the hem on the right side. On the right side hip is a beautiful fan of pleats, giving a rumpled effect to the apron. Four burnouse pleats make the back bouffant with only 45" wide fabric. The border frames the entire back panel. The closure is on the left-hand side. This overskirt has no visible seams, and is created entirely with creative pleating.
Our most ingenious skirt yet, it is sure to stand out in a crowd. Best suited for bordered or edged fabrics, including lace, eyelet, border prints, and cut work. Thick fabrics may be bulky at waist.
This is a multi-sized pattern which includes waist sizes 20-46 and hip sizes 30-56 all in one package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
