This pattern is for a knee-length chemise with short sleeves, adapted from one published in Peterson’s Ladies Magazine in 1860. The chemise was worn next to the skin and protected your clothing from perspiration and body odors.

TSU-030 Chemise has a formed yoke in the front and a straight yoke across the back, giving the garment a wider neckline so it will not conflict with the neck opening of your regular bodices. The short sleeves allow for arm movement and do not bind on the arm. Included are many different trim ideas from simple pin-tucks to laces and ribbon combinations to complete the look of your chemise.

 If you are looking for a chemise to fit under the wider necklines of a ball gown or a sheer dress please check out TSU-031 Banded Chemise available in both hardcopy and DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

This pattern is available in two size groups. Please use your the largest of your BUST, WAIST or HIP measurement to decide your pattern choice.

Pattern Requirements:
2 - 2 1/2 Yards of 45” wide cotton
Trims of choice

This listing is for a hard copy pattern and not a finished garment.
