This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for a Victorian day bodice of the early bustle period from 1869 to 1875.

The bodice is designed after extant garments of the early 1870´s with a high waist and a slopping shoulder line. All seams and darts will be boned. A waistband ensures a tight fit at the back, preventing the bodice from sliding up. Sleeves of the early bustle era are different compared to modern ones, wider and a bit baggy at the elbow. The sleeve in this pattern is narrower than usual that time. Top and undersleeves are cut the same shape and are inserted smoothly to a piped armhole, spreading the excess width evenly at the shoulder. A watch pocket is attached to the left front peplum.
The bodice can be sewn closed up with a narrow collar or with a squared neckline, as well as with a (reversible) front inlay.
The bodice will be decorated matching the basic skirt and apron with fringe, lace and braids.
Without the peplum at the front and a belt at the waist, the bodice would work for the late 1860´s as well.

Fits perfectly with:
#0115 Basic skirt
#0415 Asymmetric overskirt

Fitted to be worn over a corset and bustle.

Also suitable for steampunk costumes.
