How to order #717 Tucked Chemise with Eyelet Trim and Short Sleeves,
Circa 1850s-1870s


#717 1850s-1870s Tucked Chemise with Eyelet Trim and Short Sleeves $8.00 (US funds)

Chemises or 'shimmie' were worn throughout the nineteenth century next to the body. The corset was put on over the chemise. Generally, they were calf-length.

This pattern is multi-sized 8 through 26.

A medium weight, high thread count, white cotton sheeting is a good substitute for the original fabric.

Sizes 8-16 requires 3 Yds. of 45" wide fabric, for sizes 18-20: 3-7/8 Yds., for sizes 22-26: 4 Yds. If you pieces the neck band the sizes 8-16 requires 3 Yds., the sizes 18-26 requires 3-/4 Yds.

Past Patterns' patterns for a Petticoat and Drawers #706, a Hoop Skirt #712 and one of the Corsets: #703, #720 or #708, complete the underwear ensemble.

The Petticoat, Drawers and embroidered Chemise were part of the trousseau of Charlotte Larch. The fortunate appearance of these related garments provides us with a reasonable guideline for breadth and length of the different pieces when worn together.
