Archery gown, 1820s - the bodice

Front of bodice with trims
The bodice on the 1820 archery gown is lovely, the trims, pleats and gathers make it really interesting and gives a quasi military feel I think. Definitely suitable for a British Bow Woman in he 1820s.

My bodice is trimmed with bias strips of dark brown silk and cotton velvet.

The bodice is lined with salmon pink cotton.
