1880 Victorian Childrens style bodice

This is a pattern for a bodice from 1880 for an adult from Katherine's Dress Site

Here is the picture she took of the original

I altered the pattern to be considerably narrower at the hips removed the bustle fit and removed the tabs for a very simple hem line.

Here is my version of it as a children's style bodice [made to be worn without a bustle]

 Collar and cuff detail.

Here are very rough sketches of the simple alterations I made to Koshka the Kat's bodice pattern to bring in the hips to remove the bustle fit.


  1. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.

  2. This is beautiful! Would you consider taking a custom order for a blouse like this?
