Wearing History 1917 Combination Underwear & Chemise Pattern

Suitable for the 1910's through the Early 1920's and your WWI era impressions


This pattern is taken from an antique 1910s pattern with instructions transcribed from the original. It has not been tested for fit or construction (but don't let that stop you! This is a simple garment.).  

For intermediate difficulty, this pattern has the period original, written sewing instructions which are very minimal and text only.

Pattern has been supplemented with written translations of the period instructions. There are two main pieces, and you should be familiar with basic construction and techniques like how to attach a bias facing and a casing. The button placket is the most difficult technique; it is suggested having a sewing book handy to aid you.  

There are three pages of instruction which are included on the main pattern sheet which you can cut apart and keep in the envelope: one page is of the original cover and instruction, and two pages of Wearing History's supplemented instruction translation. No sewing illustrations are included with instructions and a layout cutting guide is included for only size 36" bust.



Includes Bust Sizes 32" to 46"

No waist size was originally indicated.  Original pattern this was based on was a 44" bust.
