Pattern Pieces and Detailed Sewing Instructions for:

1850's Inspired Piecework Gown (bodice and skirt) and Hair Ties.
This gown is designed to fit over my "1850s Dessous" pattern.


Gowns in the 1850s era were very full and demanded the use of yards and yards of fabric. Due to the occasional shortage of fabric, many seamstresses combined fabrics, assembling them artfully to complete a dress. This is my version of the concept. It is very fun to sew and very rewarding when finished. Have fun sewing!








This pattern has 4 pages of pattern pieces, and 16 pages of instructions,
with clear close-up photographs showing every step of the sewing process.
