~ Item for sale is a sewing pattern, not a finished garment ~

This style is commonly called a Turkish vest among dancers. However, it is not authentically ethnic or historical. It is a theatrical garment, developed during the Orientalist dance craze of the late 19th and 20th century, and was probably inspired by the Turkish vest like garment called a yelik.

The pattern is drafted so that the lower band cups the lower curves of the bust. This throws the lower band of the garment on the bias, causing it to stretch gently to fit the body curves. The style elongates the torso rather than cutting it visually, as occurs when the band sits beneath the bust, flat against the chest wall.

Front View A is midriff length, sleeveless, with an underbust scoop neck. It fastens at front with hooks and eyes.
Front View B has the traditional "keyhole" neckline.

There are three back styles. Each of them can be made with a straight or pointed lower edge.
Back View A has a high boat neckline.
Back View B has a diamond shaped cutout.
Back C has a low, horseshoe shaped cutout with a strap or tie at the upper edge.
