Description

Wearing History #R112- Circa 1917 Combination Underwear & Chemise

Intermediate 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 ---
This pattern is a "Resto-Vival" pattern from the 1910s.

What to Expect From This Pattern:

For intermediate difficulty, this pattern has the period original, written sewing instructions which are very minimal and text only.

This pattern was transcribed from the period original and has not been tested for fit or construction.

I have supplemented with my written translation of the period instructions. There are two main pieces, and you should be familiar with basic construction and techniques like how to attach a bias facing and a casing to make this pattern. The button placket is the most difficult technique, I suggest having a sewing book handy to aid you. There are three pages of instruction which are included on the main pattern sheet which you can cut apart and keep in the envelope- one page is of the original cover and instruction, and two pages of my supplemented instruction translation are included. No illustrations are included for instructions and a layout cutting guide is included for only size 36" bust.



SIZING:

Includes Bust Sizes 32" to 46", all in the same pattern.

No waist size was originally indicated. Original pattern this was based on was a 44" bust.

--- 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.

Nice pattern, not too intimidating if you have some sewing experience.

One of the best patterns of its kind! There are little instructions, for at their time of making, there was not a mass marketing clothing industry, so people understood how to make their own clothes and make them last; but the instructions added by WearingHistory are very helpful. Most people will want a sewing book to hand when constructing any vintage pattern, for the seller can usually add only so much information. But this pattern is simple to make - and, where the fashion industry dictates the colours and shapes to their consumers, the sewer has all the fun and satisfaction of creating their own special clothes, of a kind that can never be found in a shop!

This pattern is exceptionally comfortable, and essential to completing an underwear set of that era. The chemise will make lovely nightgowns, too!
