Pattern Pieces and Detailed Sewing Instructions for:

1850s Chemise, Petticoat, Pataloons, and Corset

I have always been inspired by the fashions of the 1850s! All the detailed work (done by hand) frills and bows, pin tucks and lace... I love it! This pattern of undergarments is designed to be as complicated or as simple as you like.

I show you my technique for dealing with pin tucks, making them BEFORE cutting the pattern pieces. However, if you like you can forego the tucks and instead add trims and lace for decoration, the results will be beautiful! Have fun sewing!

This pattern has 6 pages of pattern pieces, and 23 pages of instructions,
with over 70 clear close-up photographs showing every step of the sewing process.

This is much more than just a pattern, it's a complete Sewing Lesson!
