For hundreds of years, a chemise was the intimate garment worn next to a lady's skin. During the Victorian era it was often meticulously monogrammed in dainty script. Today, A Lady's Chemise is the perfect nightgown or simple summer dress. This 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 for this pattern, Folkwear 223: 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 size includes extra small through 3XL.

Since the 1970s, Folkwear patterns have been used by theatre and dance costumers, historic reenactors, art-to-wear-aficionados, and anyone who enjoys dressing up. Folkwear patterns are based on vintage fashions and traditional ethnic garments for an authentic look. But with a fresh eye and creative touch, these timeless styles can become exciting and trend-setting wearable art today.
