Truly Victorian TV104 Late Victorian Collars and Cuffs Pattern
Late Victorian Collars and Cuffs Pattern
A wonderful way to change the look of your basic Bustle Era bodices!
This pattern has an assortment of chemisettes and cuffs, suitable for the 1870's. Collars I and J are suitable for the 1880's and 1890's. These chemisettes are perfect for filling in a low cut diner bodice making it more suitable for day wear. Or they can add interest to a more conservative neckline. The cuffs can fill out wide sleeves or give a nice finish to a narrow sleeve.
There are two full chemisette styles: high neck and V-neck. Both have center front button closure and have ties at the waist line to hold it in place. The high neck version has 5 collar styles, and the V-neck has 3 collars.
There are 3 styles of under-sleeves with a variety of 5 cuffs. The first has a full gathered under-sleeve. Another is a fitted under-sleeve style. These two are great for filling in a wide sleeve. The last is a double cuff, or reversible cuff, that can be worn with a narrow sleeve. It has no under-sleeve but has two styles of cuffs attached back-to-back at the wrist, either cuff being viewable as desired.
