Gigot Sleeve Dress
By Thimbles and Acorns

This 1830s era dress pattern features full Gigot sleeves that snaps at the wrist for a fitted forearm that sets off the fullness of the upper sleeve. The sleeve itself can made with a full pouf at the shoulder or bound to push the fullness toward the elbow. The lined bodice has a pleated overlay and and closes in the back with buttons or snaps. Below the trimmed waistband falls a full gathered skirted finished with two rows of ruffles.
