Pattern for a victorian ball gown bodice c. 1860. The princess seam construction makes this bodice easy to fit and sew. The puff sleeve with bows or the bell sleeve change the bodice from fancy to tailored. The bodice closes and fastens in the back with lace that is drawn through eyelets and is boned to fit tightly. The point may be made shorter without changing the overall look.
