Saloon Girl or Can-Can Dancer Pattern
Saloon Girl or Can-Can Dancer Pattern

LM105 - Can-Can Dancer, Dance Hall Girl, Carnival & Circus Performer Pattern. Sizes 6-26 ~ all included in the pattern. Bodice, circle and gored skirts, petticoat, drawers, hat, and stockings All the components of the pattern Saloon Girl are separate and can be combined and layered as desired. The bodice is period correct, with the pleats in back designed to accommodate the bustles of the 1880's. The bodice is fairly modest to allow modern foundations to be worn underneath if you desire. You can always lower the neckline and narrow the shoulders for a more revealing look. feel free to substitute a chemise top and corset (pattern #100) for the bodice. It can be made with the 3/4 length sleeves or sleeveless. The drawers, both long and short, are period. The petticoat and the skirts are a circle skirt. The petticoat has 3 layers of gathered lace at both the inside and outside hem. The skirts can be made in a plain circle or gored circle, with or without ruffles. The overskirt with drape front and bustle back are period correct. The cape is 1/2 of a circle skirt. The hat is "costume construction" as most sewers today don't have access to felt hoods and hat blocks. The foam gives it a three dimensional look that approximates felt, though it can be made entirely of buckram if desired. Millinery wire enables the brim to be shaped. The stockings are copied from a picture of a prostitute shown in the Storyville video. Both horizontally and vertically striped stockings were worn. The pattern includes supply sources, a bibliography, and historical notes. Dress up like a B Western Saloon Girl or a Can-Can dancer and have fun. Twirling, kicking, sashaying, and kissing cowboys are definitely allowed! This can also be used as a base for the Queen of Hearts skirt in Alice in Wonderland. Use a nice Elizabethan bodice to complete that costume.
