Description from Truly Victorian's website: You will need to purchase a bustle pattern to wear underneath to get the silhouette pictured.
The Senora Bodice is a great example of the transitional style from hoop to bustle 1869-1872. The main highlight is the layered front; with a vest and outer Jacket layer. Both versions have a shallow point at the waist, and the closure in the center front. The “jacket” is in Bolero style, and curves down into the tails. The vest is sewn to the bodice proper at the side and shoulder seams, and at the armhole. The fitted sleeve is in 2 pieces, and can be long, or elbow length with fabric ruffle and optional inner ruffle. The basque is pulled up into pleats at the center back, falling in cascades down each side.
View A has a vest with high neckline and long sleeves.
View B has a square neck and elbow sleeves with layered ruffle.
