This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for a victorian dress circa 1870, containg the pattern for the skirt and the bodice.

Summer dresses, made from lightweight fabric like silk organza or printed cotton, were popular during the time of the early bustle era from 1869-1876 for excursions to the sea or sporting activities like tennis. Hence the name “seaside costume” comes. Beside strong and light colors also striped fabrics were popular. Striped fabric often was cut on the bias for ruches and decorations to create lovely patterns. At the beginning of the era skirts were supported by smaller crinolines with an additional bustle at the back. At the middle of the seventies the crinoline was displaced by the actual tournure or “Cul de Paris”.
