This skirt is drafted based on an actual garment as seen in Harper’s Bazaar magazine. The front hangs in low swags, and is held into the tie-back position with tapes. The back is left to hang in low swags. The closure is in the left side back seam. If desired, this skirt can be also be sewn into the side seams of underskirt TV221 to create a single double layered skirt.
This skirt is suitable for just about everything during the period of 1878-1883. It can be left plain for day wear, or elaborately trimmed for evening. This pattern works best with a crisp, less drapey fabric.
