[Image: 1850-1862 Skirt and Bodices]

1850-1862 Fashionable Skirt.

    The woman holding the fan is wearing a loose-fitting bodice with bishop sleeves which is fitted by plaiting or gathering. The front closes with buttons. The lady with the umbrella wear the same bodice but has chosen a one piece peg-top sleeve fashionable in the 1860s. The front of her bodice fastens with hooks and eyes.

    The skirt can be gathered and flounced, knife-plaited or box plaited. The original fabric of the ruffled skirt and the gathered bodice is a thin cream cotton embroidered with green evergreens. The plaited skirt and the fitted bodice fabric is a light weight plaid wool of dark green, light green, rust and cream.

    These patterns are multi-sized 10 through 20. The flounced skirt requires 7-1/8 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric. The plaited skirt requires 5-1/2 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric. The gathered bodice requires 1-7/8 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric.
