Product Description

This Ballgown 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. All sizes included in the package.

  1. Easier than I thought 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2020

    This turned out really nice the first time. I did it in embroidered silk with a grosgrain ribbon with embroidered ribbon overlay replacing the fabric stripe between the ruffles. I paired it with the 1860s Ball Gown Skirt and added the bows from the sleeves to the tops of the gathers in the skirt. It was lots of work, but nothing terribly difficult. The directions were pretty clear.
