1888 Reception Toilet (POH1888)

1888 Reception Toilet (POH1888)



The classic elements of the late 1880s silhouette, including a tailored bodice, tight sleeves, off-the-floor skirt, and prominent bustle, are all seen in this elegant two-piece dress. The pattern is based on an original in the possession of Wisconsin Historical Society of gray silk faille with white silk neck inset and gold braid, which was made to be a wedding dress.

The package contains patterns for bodice, skirt and bustle pad, richly illustrated instructions, historical notes and documentation of the original dress! A wonderful set!

Size Small (US 8-10-12).
