Product Description

This Tail Bodice is designed after a style shown in an 1883 Harper's Bazaar magazine. This style was also popular in the later 1880's and 1890's, as well. The front of this bodice has a point and the sides extend past the waist. The back and side-back have "tails" that lay in double box pleats, giving the classic "waterfall" style The sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full- or 3/4-length. There is a full mandarin collar for the high neck, and a half collar for the open neck variation. Our bodices are 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, and over a bustle. All sizes included in the package.
