Product Description

This is a polonaise with a basque back, i.e. the back has an upper bodice section overlapping a lower section with poufs. The front buttons to the waist and then falls open into two points, with pleats at the sides. As an option, the buttons can be extended down the front to give a round apron effect. This style was very popular in the early 1870's. The sleeve is a full length pleated bell. Two neckline options are given. This pattern is recommended for intermediate to advanced sewers. This pattern is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1870's. Each size is hand drawn, not scaled. All of the bodice seams are true to the era, and it is designed to fit snugly over a corset. All sizes included in the package.

  1. 1873 Polonaise 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Apr 2015

    Very throughout measurements and clever alterations ideas warrant high marks for reproducers of period clothing. It would have scored higher if they have included period type fabrics and colors to use, and close-ups of trim ideas. I already did the research, so I am confident that when people tell me "you look like you just stepped out of a history book or painting", they they approve.
