Product Description

The Illustration for this Revere Bodice pattern is taken from the August 23, 1861 issue of Der Bazar, magazine. It is named for the French term which describes the fold-over lapel at the neckline, the folds at the center back below the waist, and at the outside of the sleeves. It is very much like a jacket and can be worn over a full blouse like TV441 Garibaldi Blouse, or a chemisette and undersleeves. Made of wool or heavy fabrics, it is a nice winter style, or made of light cottons or silks, it can work for summer styles as well.

The Revere bodice has the wide 2-piece sleeve common to the early 1860's. It is based on the standard 3-piece bodice, with 2 darts at the front and a curved side back seam. The front and side are also fitted with a "fish seam" at the waistline, to help smooth the fit over the hips.

For this pattern, please disregard any attempt at standard sizing. Everyone is unique in body type and size, and the pattern makers have come up with a totally different way of managing patterns.  Comprehensive directions on how to size and adjust this pattern for a good fit are included.  These methods are a little different than what you may be used to, so please read them carefully, before cutting out pattern pieces.  All sizes are included in the package.
