Product Description

This Vest Basque bodice is designed from a garment as shown in the November 23, 1872 issue of Harper's Bazaar Magazine. The longer, layered look below the waist lend the term "Basque" to this bodice. Many similar bodices where shown throughout 1872 and on into 1875. It has a simulated "vest" portion in the center front, closing with buttons to the waist, and diamond-shaped neckline framed with a rolled collar. The back has a tail with a pleat at each side-back seam. The side-backs are loose below the waist and overlap the back tail. The fitted sleeve is in 2 pieces, and has a wide cuff. Undersleeve is not included in this pattern. 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, with a bustle. All sizes included in the package.
