Circa 1910 Pleated Skirt Pattern

One Size Only- Size 26" Waist, 43" Hip


A beautiful and classic pleated skirt pattern from the actual year of the Titanic! This 1912 skirt features a lovely asymmetrical pleated treatment at the front, darts at the side, and release tucks at the back. This skirt can be made with a high waist supported by an internal waistband or a "regulation waist", with a waistband that hits at the natural waist.

Please note that this skirt illustration shows it being quite narrow, but the skirt is actually quite full. See the mock up photo for an actual image.

This pairs very well with our 1910s Blouse and Guimpe Pattern!

- - About Archive Couture Patterns - -
Archive Couture patterns are of Advanced Difficulty and recommended for those who are familiar with putting patterns together with little to no instruction, and who are familiar with pattern alterations for fit. These patterns are have been taken from original historical source materials. These sources may include diagrams, overlapping patterns in magazine issues, early tissue paper patterns, or other period source material. The source material was used by experienced home sewists, dressmakers, or tailors of the period from which they are derived. These patterns were only available only in single sizes, with details such as grain lines or buttonholes most often unmarked. Wearing History has clarified markings (where given) and supplied tips for working with these historical patterns. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book on hand to help with construction and fitting. Archive Couture patterns follow the period shapes of the original period source material, maintaining the historical accuracy and fit of the completed garment. Fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry. Fit and proportion of these patterns are different than modern costume patterns and may require alteration to fit your modern body, even when wearing period style foundations. Several mock ups may be required to achieve ideal fit. We believe these patterns should not be lost to time or languish in historical archives, but be made available for historical sewing enthusiasts of today.

**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.
