**Please note: The package includes patterns for the bib apron. Detailed, illustrated instructions are included for the construction of the skirt and petticoat.
The kind of fabric, the amount of material in a Skirt or Petticoat and the kind of waistband used were indicative of the "station" and living style of a woman in the 18th and 19th centuries. Linen or wool were used for everyday and for many women that was all they had or could afford. For special occasions, finer weight fabrics and silk and cotton were used.
Includes instructions for either a peasant style skirt with drawstring waistband or a fitted waistband, for side slits for getting into period "pockets" (included in our Woman's Cloth Accessories Pattern - PM/55) and has two optional lengths. The apron pattern has an option of two bib front styles.
As with all Eagle's View Patterns, all terms are fully defined in the handy glossary and this is combined with bold illustrated instructions that make using these patterns easy even for the novice seamstress.
