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"

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.

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.
