Victoria dress and jumpsuit
Victoria is an elegant dress and jumpsuit with a fitted, lined bodice, just as pretty on the inside as the outside. Victoria is sleeveless, with a scooped back that closes with rouleau loops and shank buttons. You can also sew a beautiful flutter starting on the front of the bodice and extending down the back.
The dress has a half circle skirt hemmed with horsehair braid for a gorgeous, more stable and full hem. You can also sew a regular hem.
The jumpsuit has long legs in a simple, baggy design. You can sew it with or without pockets. You can add buttons to the crotch seam, but you don’t have to, the jumpsuit can be pulled on through the bodice.
