Lovely tail bodice and walking skirt. Shown in rust twill fabric with black trims.
This bodice is designed after styles shown in many fashion magazines of 1884. The front of this bodice has a simulated vest portion. This vest can be of a different fabric and trimmed to effect. The front outline is pointed and the sides curve upward over the hip. The back and side-back have short "tails" that lay in loose box pleats to fit over any size bustle. The sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full, princess, or ¾-length. There is a double Military collar, which can also be made of separate fabric, to continue the vest effect. Although the bodice is late bustle era I did pair it with an early bustle skirt.
