From Laughing Moon Mercantile. Multi-Sized 2 – 26.
1909-1913 Directoire (slightly empire) dress has princess seamed (boning optional) bodice to waist, with short or elbow length sleeves. Two choices can go over that, kimono sleeve shown in View A or overbodice shown in View B. The skirt is sewn to the underbodice raised from the waist 2 inches in front and raised higher in back. The back can be trained or not, with either a square or pointed shape. The back opening has period placket with hooks and eyes or modern zipper. An optional overskirt can be added and modified to be straight or “V’ed”. Dress pieces are interchangeable. A separate guimpe (blouse) has a high collar, two piece sleeves, and buttons down the back. Period Sewing methods are shown and modern shortcuts are suggested.
Lengths: Finished length of skirt at Center Front is 45 1/8″. The skirt is approximately 2″ elevated in the front – therefore the skirt is 43 1/8″ from natural waist. Lengthening the skirt will add to the yardage.
