Product Description

This pattern is for a variety of 1845 day dresses. It is drafted using a German tailor's guide written circa 1843. This style is suitable for the years 1840-1853, and should be worn over several petticoats rather than a hoop. View A has a gathered Fan Front bodice, with a fitted lining and a smooth back. View B has a fitted front with reveres, narrow at the waist and widening out to the shoulders. The bodice can also be left plain if desired. The bodice is fitted in the front with seam from shoulder to front waist, instead of darts. It also has a side, side back, and back seams for a closer fit recommended for the larger German body frame. The waistline is slightly low all around, with a deep point in the front. The full skirt can be attached to the bodice, or can be sewn to a separate waistband. The closure is in the center back, with hooks and eyes. The narrow 2 piece sleeve can also be headed with an optional sleeve cap. All sizes included in the package.
