Completed Costumes/Impressions Characters and Costumes from the mid- to late- 18th Century Characters and Costumes from the early Federal Era
Very nice work! I’d be interested in a pattern or piece from mid to late 18 c for a working class or “frontier” impression. Bodice needs to fit close & snug so it doesn’t shift around etc in wearing. If I need to send measurements for a correct snug fit for pattern or having this made, please let me know what measurements you would need. I like the look of the close-fitting bodice with elbow sleeves and stomacher panel with shoulder shawl with front ends tucked in. If I could get some help picking, drafting, or adjusting a bodice pattern to fit me, that would be of value to me.
