1864 Sash Belt - TV 445
Wide belts were very popular through the 1860's. Belts with long tabs were a favorite in 1864-1866. They look wonderful with a blouse, and also with a Spanish Jacket. A belt can also dress up a plain bodice. They can be either the same fabric as the skirt, or a contrasting fabric to define the waist. Period examples were used for both day outfits and dinner or evening dresses.
View A has two long tabs in the front and 2 longer tabs in the back. View B has a pointed front, and the 2 long tabs in the back. For both views, the center back has a laced closure. It fits very nicely over. Decorate with braid, beading, or lace for very pretty results.
Each pattern includes sizing for waist sizes 22” – 42”
