Wearing History #R101-Cordelia- Circa 1909-1914 Edwardian Skirt Pattern
Multi-Size Waist 22"-40"

Intermediate-Advanced Sewing Skill Recommended

This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper.


--- DESCRIPTION ---

A Resto-Vival pattern from the Edwardian period and is suitable for looks from 1909-1914.

The skirt is in the Edwardian "directoire" style, and meant to fall gracefully from the top of the fitted interior waistband, skim the waist and the hips, and fall gracefully to the floor.

This pattern has LOTS of options and covers all your basic skirt needs of this period and can be used to make the following in both DAY and EVENING versions:

--- Day or Evening Versions with Hem Options of ---
-A skirt with a small sweep
-A skirt with a rounded, longer train
-A skirt with a pointed train
-A skirt with a squared train

--- This skirt can be---
-seamed up the back with a pain, normal center back seam
-pleated at the back
OR:
-Made as a one-piece skirt, buy cutting on the fold and seaming up center back.
-Made as a two-piece skirt, with seams at both center front and center back
-Made a a skirt for a dress, by attaching a bodice at the raised waistline and using ANY of the above options.

--- More Features About this Skirt ---
-This skirt is shaped with a wide, long dart at the hip.
-It is not meant to be fitted at the natural waist, but is fitted to the top of the raised waistband.
-The hem of this skirt should be weighted, as done with the tucked version or the trains.
-This is shown in photographs with the Wearing History 1910s Blouse Pattern.
-This skirt is from, essentially, one GIANT piece, and will most likely require piecing to get it to fit -on a fabric width, especially for larger sizes.
-The two-piece skirt is seamed up center front and may be cut on the straight of grain and is suitable for stripes, which will fall at a diagonal at center back.
-This skirt can fall straight at the front or be pleated at the side front and accented with appliques or trim, or left plain.
-This skirt is constructed with an interior waistband made of 2" wide belting, and the waist hits above the natural waist.
-This skirt is best made in fabrics with a nice drape such as cottons, linens, satins, or wools. It does not look as well in fabrics with a stiff hand.
-This pattern may be worn without corsets if you do not wish to style this in a period way and choose to use it for modern wear but adjustments may be needed and it still looks best when worn with period foundations and at least one petticoat.
-Waist and hip size should be determined by taking your waist and hip measure as taken over period foundation garments such as corsets and petticoats.



This pattern includes original period instructions which are text only and very minimal.

No cutting charts are given, and yardage charts may not be reliable, since they are for fabric widths of 100 years ago, not today. No period yardages are given for sizes 36, 38, & 40 waist, as this pattern was not originally available in these sizes.



---This Pattern Includes---
-Text only instructions, which are minimal, transcribed directly from this century-old pattern.
-New pattern markings, to aid in understanding the pattern piece (original was unmarked).
-Basic written tips by me to aid in construction
-A multi-size pattern, in sizes 22"-40" waist. The original was single size, in a 28" waist.
-Instructions and cover on BIG pattern layout sheet you assemble. This is done to conserve paper, as there was blank space after pattern placement.

---This Pattern DOES NOT include---
-NO illustrations to go with instructions
-NO detailed sewing instructions- instructions are basic and sparce.
-NO cutting charts
-NO instruction included for piecing fabric widths.
-NO yardages given for sizes 36", 38", & 40" waist.
-There are no side seams for pattern adjustment. Adjustments may be made at the waist by taking in or letting out the dart placed at the hip. A muslin mock up is highly suggested to test fit before cutting into your fashion fabric.



--- About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns ---

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.

FAQs

**Note in the description if you're purchasing an original vintage pattern or a Wearing History pattern**
--You do not have to be afraid of harming a delicate original vintage pattern.
--They cost a fraction of the price of purchasing an original rare vintage pattern.
--The patterns are easier to understand and clearly marked pieces instead of holes or dot markings.
--Most patterns are multi-sized so you can cut the size you need. Original vintage patterns were only single size in a packet.
--E-patterns are downloadable and printable at home. You can buy and start sewing in a weekend!
--Several Wearing History patterns are drafted by me and/or have new instructions (These are the Signature Styles patterns).
--Very little ease is included in comparison to modern standards, and most run true to size.
--Armholes and sleeves fit higher than tighter than modern standards. You may need to alter your sleeves & armscyes if you prefer modern fit with more ease.
--Resto-Vival patterns are based on original period patterns and were meant to be worn with period foundations- Girdles, period bras, etc may make a difference in fit. A Victorian or Edwardian garment will be sized to fit over a corset.
--All patterns are based on Misses or Women's patterns. Petites, tall, juniors, and & sizes will most likely need adjustments
--ALWAYS make a mock up before cutting into your final fabric.
New patterns based on original period sources or brand new designs with new step-by-step illustrated instructions, improved fit, and new cutting layouts and yardage requirements for modern fabric widths. These patterns can either be based on period originals with changes that improve the original pattern fit and instructions, or a unique draft to Wearing History that has been drafted by me personally and heavily researched to be period correct. These patterns also include instructions that are hand drawn or digitally drawn and composed by me personally.
Resto-Vival patterns are restored and revived based on historical pattern source material. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included, the complexity of which can vary from pattern to pattern. Older patterns may have text only instructions. Intermediate to advanced sewing knowledge is recommended. We suggest keeping a sewing book handy.
I ALWAYS suggest to make a muslin mock up to check fit and construction before cutting into your fashion fabric. Every body is different, even if measurements are similar, and making a mock up of inexpensive fabric is the only surefire way to make sure your garment will fit your unique figure and have the ease you want. Don’t make a garment out of your final fabric without testing and expect it to be perfect- it’s just not feasible. It’s kind of like going shopping at the mall– you don’t expect every item on a hanger to fit you perfectly and it requires some trying on. Not all sizes run the same between all the stores and brands. The same is true of sewing patterns, so make your mock up!
I'm sorry, I do not offer pattern making services, pattern grading services, or custom sewing.
Please view each individual pattern for size information, as size can vary from pattern to pattern.
Please keep in mind that patterns are based on misses or women's sizing. Plus size, juniors, petites, and tall sizes will most likely require additional alterations so I highly suggest making a mock up before sewing your final garment.
All patterns are full size, unless otherwise indicated. They may use a LOT of paper to print, but are already sized and graded for you.
When you buy an e-pattern from me, you receive a multi-page PDF file you download to your computer and print at home. The patterns are formatted to fit on both 8.5 x 11 sized letter and A4 paper. All pages are tiled to make it easy for home sewists to print at home and then assemble into a larger pattern sheet.
You print the patterns at 100% scale or "actual size", and then cut and tape the dotted lines together.
All pattern pages are numbered, so you can keep track of you process. An additional file is included to help with assembly- make sure you read it before you print your files.
I have been told by many customers that my e-patterns are some of the easiest to assemble, and I'm thankful for their high praise!
Yes, I do. These are not currently listed in my Etsy store.
