Patterns advice needed

Postby Cathi H » Thu Jan 03, 2019 6:31 am

I have to make a 1895/1900's black ball/evening dress.
What patterns would be best for this project?
What bodice was used with the TV297 - 1898 (green) Flared Skirt ?

I wish you a Happy New Year from France

I would think that TV490 would work for you. I suspect that the picture on TV297 is basically that pattern, but modified some. Miss Heather mentioned at one point that she usually tweaked her patterns which ended up for the pictures.

Yes, the green bodice is TV490. I omitted the sleeves, and then draped 3" wide ribbon around the neckline and shoulders.
