1860's Civil War Ball Gown Bodice Sewing Pattern
1860's Civil War Ball Gown Bodice Sewing Pattern by Truly Victorian
This Civil War Ball Gown Bodice fits just off the shoulder for evening wear. It reaches to the waist and has a point in front and back. An optional gathered bertha trims the neckline. The closure is in the center back, with hooks and eyes. The sleeve is a small pouf with a fitted lining. A double bow decorates the shoulders. This style is particularly suited to 1850-1873, but can be used for other periods as well. Heavy decorations at the neckline will give an elegant look to the bodice.
This is a heavy paper pattern with 8 pieces. The sewing instructions seem easy to follow, and are lightly illustrated. There is instruction on how to customize your pattern for a perfect fit, and a page of suggested trims.
Multi-sized pattern with 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.
