Taking A Closer Look – Dropped Shoulders

After looking at shoulders in CDVs on Monday, today we will look at the shoulders of original dresses. Thank you to Martin’s Mercantile for the use of their original clothing images.

This bodice shows the length of the shoulder in the bodice extending beyond the natural shoulder and dropping below the natural shoulder. Notice how we don’t see the shoulder seam itself from the front. The armscye is diagonal while the trim of the sleeve cap is nearly horizontal. This shoulder also extends beyond the natural shoulder. Again, we do not see the seam from the front. The top of the trim sits along the armscye seam creating a nearly horizontal seam along the bottom edge. This wrapper bodice, viewed from the back, shows the placement of the shoulder seam behind the natural shoulder line.
