1880s Seaside Costume

Patterns: TV 367 Over-skirt. the bodice and under-skirt are my own drafting.
Fabrics: 100% Cotton print, Cotton eyelet, Egyptian cotton lining.
Measurements: Chest 41", Waist 35", Hip Free, Hem 39"
Available on ebay HERE

I got some inspiration for the bodice from a fashion plate, circa 1888. The center portion is like a stomacher, detaching completely from buttons on either wise. The collar is in one pieces with the front pieces,forming a rolled collar.
