Past Patterns 905-7: Three Piece Ensemble, Bodice, Skirt, and Overskirt Fashionable circa 1883-4.
Past Patterns' Summer Three-Piece Dress is worn without a bustle. The October 1889 issue Godey's Ladies Magazine states:
The war between a small bustle and none at all still continues. Everyone cannot dispense with this little addition to their figures. Those who can dispense with it, however, are only to glad to do so, and, by making underskirts very full at the back, this can generally be done, even by not quite perfect figures.
This pattern comes in three sizes, and the three patterns may be purchased individually for $10.00 each, or as a set for $25.00.
SALE! These patterns are now on SALE for $8.00 each or $20 for the set!
