Description
Bodice, c.1870s. Pink and brown shot satin silk brocade with all over pattern of small flower buds in darker shade. Three quarter length sleeves, standing collar, buttoned front, pleated and flared at waist. The standing collar is about four centimetres tall, and closes at centre front with a hook and eye. The centre front of the bodice closes with buttons two centimetres apart the whole way down. The first thirteen are the original metal ball buttons, but the last eleven are flat brown plastic replacement buttons. There is also a small pocket in the left side front. The sleeves are gathered somewhat at the caps, and are left un-fitted on the arm. The front of the bodice is shaped with two darts on each side, each with a whale bone inserted into them. The front of the bodice points down in a deep V shape. The back has three panels for each side, with a bone in each of the two seams closest to the sides and one at centre back. At the bottom centre back, there is a heavily pleated piece meant to fan out over a bustle. Inside the bodice, it is lined with beige cotton twill, with a green cotton facing along the inside of the neckline and centre fronts. The twill tape binding over the back bottom pleated addition and the seams are whip-stitch finished.

Description
Bodice, c.1890s. Black silk taffeta with black lace and corded trim. Pouter pigeon front, round neckline, bishop sleeves that are tight on forearms, waistband. The top half of the bodice front and back are heavily decorated. Around the neckline, there are strips of fabric joined by faggoting stitches; beneath this there are rows of corded trim. On top of both of these, hangs a profusion of black floral embroidered lace trim. At the cording front and the bottom front and back, the taffeta is gathered. At the front there are pieces of gathered taffeta sewn in between the main fabric and the lining to create a puffed appearance. At the bottom of the bodice, which is rounded in the back and dips down to a small point in the front, there is a ruched waistband. It ends in a knot at the left front, where it attaches with a hook and thread eye. Each sleeve is gathered to the armscye, and the corded trim on the bodice extends over the sleeves at the upper arms. The sleeves also have a gathered frill along their outer edges. They are gathered below the elbow into a tight fitting section that extends to their ends. The cuffs are decorated with stitching lines and sections attached by faggoting stitches. The bodice is lined with another layer of black taffeta, with thirteen feather bones. The lining closes up the centre front with hooks and eyes, and the main fabric closes over that with hooks and thread eyes. The lining is visible from the breast line up to the neckline, and would have been filled in with a piece of neckwear.

Bodice, c.1900. Black silk taffeta. Trimmed with velvet, net, sequins, beads, and embroidered applique. Leg o' mutton sleeves, high collar. Skirt: BV985.3515.1. The entire bodice is black, and the net seems to come pre-embroidered with sequins and beads. The high collar is covered with the embroidered net, and edged with velvet on the top. On the centre front of the bodice, there is a different net with strips of velvet that run horizontally at intervals. The lace is gathered at the neckline and at the waistline to create a puff at the bodice front. Hanging from each shoulder with the corner pointing to the elbow is a square of sequin and bead embroidered net, edged with a strip of velvet. Another strip of velvet attaches to that one with a faggoted stitch. The sleeves are set in at the armscye, but gradually come out to huge pleated puffs at the elbows. They then taper back to the wrists, where there is a small split. Here a flounce of net hangs, trimmed with a ruffle of black taffeta. On the outside of the cuffs, there is an applique of maple leaf embroidery. At the waist, which comes to a slight point at the centre front, there is a belt of three velvet strips. At the centre back, there are three triangle shaped formations of bead on a metal frame, one on each velvet strip. There are six of these at centre front (one on each side of the hook and eye closure) and there are two on each side, where the strips are gathered slightly on top of each other. Inside, the bodice is lined with brown, white, and green striped taffeta. There are fifteen feather bones on the sides and back. The bodice closes up the centre front with hooks and eyes, and the collar wraps around the back to close there with two hooks and eyes.

Description
Bodice, c.1915. Black satin silk. Straight cut, gathered. Three quarter length sleeves, square neck, black embroidery, black and white glass beads, sash at waist. The bodice is cut straight, falling just past the natural waist, with volume added through pleats and gathers. At each front shoulder there are gathers, as well as along the bottom front. At the bottom back, there are pleats. The neckline is trimmed with embroidery in a leaf pattern, done in black floss. At the centre front it dips down in a square neckline, with a beaded panel starting at the bottom of the square. It is made up of back and white glass beads in a diamond pattern on a black net background. The panel is in a shield shape. The sleeves are loose fitting, with black floss embroidery around the cuffs in a looping pattern. At the bottom of the bodice there is a sash that covers the pleats and gathers, and extends on the left side where it may have been tied. The sash also closes with a snap, one on the sash ties and two more at the point where they close on the bodice. There are also snaps on the left shoulder. Inside, there is a black china silk lining that closes at the centre front with hooks and eyes.
Object History

Bodice, c.1895. Black patterned china silk with green, pink, and gold flowers. Huge leg o' mutton sleeves gather into small black velvet cuffs. Slightly puffed front, peplum. At the small round neckline, there is a small half inch stand collar. The centre front of the bodice is gathered at the neckline and at the waist. Beneath the waist, there is a peplum with most of its flare in the back. The rest of the bodice is unadorned, as the sleeves are really the main focus. The sleeves are cartridge pleated around the top of the armscye. The lightweight fabric and internal supports make each shoulder puff out to roughly the size of a watermelon. They taper slightly to the cuff (where they are gathered), but most of the volume remains for the whole sleeve. The black velvet cuffs have a flower on the outside, but no opening. Inside, the bodice is lined with brown cotton, and nine bones. The peplum is lined with gold a silk floral brocade. The bodice has hook and eye closures up the centre front.

Description
Bodice, c.1890s. Brown silk and cotton bengaline. Long fitted sleeves with small shoulder puff, burnt out brown velvet cuffs, basque cut, tails in back. This bodice has a very closely fitting neck, but no collar. The sleeves are close fitting except for a small puff on the shoulders: a shadow of the gargantuan puffed sleeves that dominated the 1890s. The cuffs are made with a burnt out silk, a velvet paisley pattern on a gold silk background. The front of the bodice is undecorated, but there are loose threads from decoration that was once tacked on either side of the centre front opening. At the back, the four back panels extend independently from the end of the bodice to form tails with square ends. Inside, the bodice is lined with beige patterned cotton: white tulips under a pattern of squares formed with alternating blue and red dotted lines. There are seven bones and a blue and white striped belt at the waist that closes with a hook and eye. The centre front of the bodice used to close with buttons, but they have been removed.
