#223 A Lady's Chemise
Extra Small to 3X Large. $16.95

For hundreds of years, a chemise was that intimate garment worn next to a lady's skin and was often meticulously monogrammed in dainty script during the Victorian era. 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. Instructions and alphabet designs for a Victorian monogram are included. Suggested Fabrics: Light-weight cottons and blends such as batiste, lawn, voile, gauze, or eyelet; handkerchief linen; silks such as crepe de chine; rayon challis. Originals were made of lightweight muslin or linen. Pattern users have shared a Sewing Tip for this pattern.
