1880 Jacket Bodice Sewing Pattern
1880 Jacket Bodice Sewing Pattern by Truly Victorian
This style is particularly suited to 1878-1882, and is perfect for daytime events. This jacket has a roll-down collar with lapels, and is cut away at the center front below the waist. The bodice hem can be made in two styles, either with two points and shaped over the hips, or long on both sides and back. The side back seams open up into pleats below the hip for added fullness. The fitted sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full length with a cuff, or 3/4 length.
The bodice is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1870's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled, with all of the bodice seams true to the era. This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset, without a bustle.
This is a multi-sized pattern which includes bust sizes 30-56 and waist sizes 22-48 all in one package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
