1870s Mourning Dress
A mix of Truly Victorian Victorian patterns, altered.
Bodice: TV460, shortened. Collar reshaped and shortened. Sleeves taken from TV420 to avoid shoulder puff. It is shown tucked in, under a belt, as well as untucked further down.
Over Skirt: TV305, front panel lengthened and widened at sides to create a straight hem. Extra pleats added at sides to compensate for the lengthening.
Underskirt: TV201. Closure moved from left side-back to center back with an overlapping gauntlet style placket. Otherwise, unaltered.
Hopefully there will be a few more pictures to follow tonight. =)
