1864 Sash Belt
Sizing A B C D E F G H I J K
Bust 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46" 48" 50"
Waist 22" 24" 26" 28" 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42"
Wide belts were very popular through the 1860's. Belts with long tabs were a favorite in 1864-1866. They look wonderful with a blouse, and also with a Spanich Jacket. A belt can also dress up a plain bodice. They can be either the same fabric as the skirt, or a contrasting fabric to define the waist. Period examples were used for both day outfits and dinner or evening dresses.  This belt has two long tabs in the front, and 2 longer tabs in the back. The center back has a laced closure. It fits very nicely over the TV103 elliptical hoop, but can also be worn with a round hoop. Decorate with braid, beading, or lace for very pretty results.

1860's Darted Bodice
Sizing A B C D E F G H I J K L M N
Bust 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46" 48" 50" 52" 54" 56"
Waist 22" 24" 26" 28" 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46" 48"

This bodice is drafted for the re-enactor, and is the basic darted bodice that was seen throughout the 1860's.   Though seen as casual wear in 1860, by 1863, this style gains popularity and becomes accepted for more dressy occasions.  By 1865, it is the most common bodice style, and remains so until the 1870's. It has a jewel neckline, moderately dropped shoulder, and ends round at the natural waist.   The center front is cut on the straight of grain, and is fitted with 2 darts.  The back is fitted with a curved T-back seam, and a side piece.    The sleeves are the 2-piece coat sleeve, with the slightly full elbow that was popular 1863-1869. Also included, are 2 styles of linen collars;  a pointed sailor or "flat" collar (pre-1864), and a pointed stand collar (1864 and later.) The collars are basted into the bodice neckline prior to wearing.

1845 German Day Dress
Sizing A B C D E F G H I J K
Bust 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46" 48" 50"
Waist 22" 24" 26" 28" 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42"

This pattern is for a variety of 1845 dresses. It is drafted using a German tailor's guide written circa 1843. This style is suitable for the years 1840-1853, and should be worn over several petticoats rather than a hoop. View A has a gathered Fan Front bodice, with a fitted lining and a smooth back. View B has a fitted front with reveres, narrow at the waist and widening out to the shoulders. The bodice can also be left plain if desired. The bodice is fitted in the front with seam from shoulder to front waist, instead of darts. It also has a side, side back, and back seams for a closer fit recommended for the larger German body frame. The waistline is slightly low all around, with a deep point in the front. The full skirt can be attached to the bodice, or can be sewn to a separate waistband. The closure is in the center back, with hooks and eyes. The narrow 2 piece sleeve can also be headed with an optional sleeve cap.
