Product Description

This is a double breasted habit bodice taken from an 1883 tailoring guide. This was one style that was very popular during the late bustle era, and is suitable for 1882-1889. It has a roll collar/lapel, double points in the front, and square tail with a center back vent. The 2-piece coat sleeve is very slim, with a slightly full head. Combine this bodice with TV264 Habit Skirt for a riding outfit. Or wear it with a regular skirt and overskirt for a tailored day dress. The sewing methods given in the instructions are for simple construction. If you desire a fully tailored jacket, it is recommended that you find further instruction into tailoring techniques. This pattern is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1880's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled, with all of the seams true to the era. This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset. All sizes included in the package.
