~ Item for sale is a sewing pattern, not a finished garment ~
Carefully hand-stitched from muslin or fine-spun lawn, a chemise was that intimate garment worn next to a lady's skin. During the Victorian era, it was often meticulously monogrammed in dainty script. Today, A Lady's Chemise is the perfect nightgown or simple summer dress.
Our flattering chemise was worn during the mid to late 1800s and we offer two appealing versions. Both views have short gathered and ruffled cap sleeves and can be cut low knee-length or at the hip to be worn as a blouse. Delicate pleats accent the center front and back of the neckline, which is adjustable with feminine ribbon drawstrings.
The neckline of View A drops just off the shoulder in the late 19th century style and uses purchased eyelet beading and lace or eyelet ruffles at the neckline and sleeve. The neckline of View B sits on the shoulder, as in earlier eras; it features a self-fabric ruffle and casing for the ribbon drawstring.
Instructions and alphabet designs for a Victorian monogram are included.
