Asymmetrical styles were very fashionable in the 1880's, as was the use of bordered laces and fabrics. This pattern combines the two elements beautifully. The apron starts with the border high on the left hip, and falls in graceful folds to the hem on the right side. On the right side hip is a beautiful fan of pleats, giving a rumpled effect to the apron. Four burnouse pleats make the back bouffant with only 45" wide fabric. The border frames the entire back panel. The closure is on the right hand side. This overskirt has no visible seams, and is created entirely by creative pleating.
