This gown is made from the Natural Form period. I use all authentic patterns and all seams are true to the era. This ensemble would have been worn between 1878 to 1882. I feel this is the most comfortable gown I sell simply because you need not wear a bustle. Perfect for all types of events Day, Dinner or Evening.
This ensemble is can be made with your choice of long or 3/4 length sleeves. The back has a square "tail" effect. The shoulders are slightly dropped. The bodice is lined and interlined for stability. I do not add boning unless you specifically request it.
The Fan Tail skirt, so named for the fan inset on the back of the skirt. The skirt can be made in the floor length or in a shorter Walking Length version (shown below)minus the fan insert.
Also shown with a draped overskirt.

This style is particularly suited to 1878 - 1882, and is perfect for daytime events. This jacket has a roll down collar with lapels, and is cut away at the center front below the waist. The side back seams open up into pleats below the hip for added fullness. The fitted sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be made either full length with a cuff, or ¾ length
