1879-1880: The World of Fashion and Continental Feuilletons

I have seen this in “Patterns of Fashion 2” for years so it’s nice to be able to put it in context!
There is also a skirt pattern that shows the top and tailing cutting layout but also the curved upper section for fitting over the hips!
And this section is repeated a few times, handy for those who were collecting the magazines by month!
Plate 178 has a style I love, the self trimmed gown, the vertical folds at the neck.
Maybe I can do this with my princesse petticoat? It would make it so very much more useful!
There are other volumes online too!
