This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for late Victorian ball bodices, worn around 1890.

The sewing pattern includes two different versions of a ball gown bodice from around 1890. The bottom edge reaches slightly below the waistline at the sides and is pointed in front and back, the squared neckline is piped and fitted with a drawstring. The bodice is flatlined with a (waxed) cotton fabric, no additional lining is added. All seams are boned and the seam allowances neatened with an overcasting stitch.

The bodice fits perfectly with the Fan-Skirt pattern #0414: https://www.etsy.com/de/listing/212870832/edwardianischer-rock-fan-skirt-um-1890?ref=shop_home_active_1&crt=1

View A (1890´s): The bodice is closed at the center front edge to edge with hooks and eyes and has huge puffed sleeves. The neckline is decorated with flounces and trimmings from sheer fabric and (faux) fur.

View B (1880´s): The sleeveless bodice is closed at the center front with buttons and is decorated with lace, forming little sleeves if wanted.

Also suitable for cosplay or steampunk costumes.
