Bustle fashions 1885-1887 contains a wide selection of high-quality women's clothing patterns from the height of the bustle era. During these years, the waist was flattered by a closely fitted bodice, considerable fullness below the waist in back, and ample skirt draperies. This book contains practical patterns for undergarments and nightgowns; wrappers and tea gowns; bodices, skirts, and overskirts; complete ensembles for street and hose wear; and outer jackets, coats, dolmans, and cloaks. The patterns are drawn from rare original issues of the magazine The Voice of Fashion and 1885 to 1887 editions of the pattern book The National Garment Cutter. They were used by both amateur and professional dressmakers to make up the mainstream styles of the day, and are very similar to patterns published by Butterick. These patterns are enlarged with apportioning scales, which are provided in this book, along with step-by-step instructions. Apportioning scales are special rulers that enable you to draft custom sizes, from queen size to doll size, without doing arithmetic. Most patterns in this book are accompanied by supplementary illustrations with detailed descriptions, drawn from Butterick's Delineator magazine. Each of these supplements shows optional style variations that can be produced by using flat patterns alteration techniques, or merely by substituting a garment section from a different pattern in this book. The descriptions include information on construction and fabrics. Edited selections from fashion columns in The Delineator, Harpers Bazar, and other publications add information on style trends. Also drawn from The Delineator are instructions and illustrations for 208 trimmings and 91 accessories. In addition, a chapter on dressmaking, assembled from articles in Godey's Lady's Book, gives detailed information on making garments for the second half of the 1880s. The book's glossary explains period fabric names and dressmaking terms. Bustle Fashions 1885-1887 is a pattern source for readers who recreate period clothing for theater and film; living history; Old West and single-action shooting events; steampunk and goth outfits; bridal parties; or dolls. It's a valuable identification and dating tool for costume historians and vintage clothing collectors. And it will spark ideas for fashion designers.

Fashion and the Idealized Body

Fashion dating to before the eighteenth century, is customarily studied through the analysis of paintings, sculptures, writings, and surviving garments. These sources while providing immense information on what was worn, express fashion as a physical element of a larger composition. Fashion in this time period was directly linked to the body; something that sat on top of skin, on top of muscles, on top of bones. This paper explores the equivocal relationship of fashion to the figure beneath it as seen in fashion plates post-1800. What becomes of fashion when it becomes free of the three-dimensional form to which it has previously been bonded? What form does it take on when the ‘real’ body is no longer a factor? Most importantly, how does fashion then govern the body that once controlled it? Though ‘bodies’ are still drawn in fashion plates, the main objective of these illustrations is to show the ideal styles of the time. The following research analyzes the forms of fashion and its associated body as portrayed through popular fashion periodicals from 1800 to 1963, noting the period-related changes in its idealized proportions. Using a quantitative method, the forms of 730 fashion plates published throughout forty periodicals were dissected and measurements were taken of their various parts. The ratios of these various measurements were then calculated and averaged by decade. This study is an attempt to show that fashion plates can be quantitatively analyzed and that their measurements can be compiled into a cohesive understanding of the fantasy that was the attraction of the fashion plate.
