Traditional Edwardian undergarments paper sewing pattern by Folkwear.

Three charming "unmentionables" from the Edwardian bride's trousseau. The camisole, petticoat, and drawers make lovely undergarments or the prettiest summer outerwear.

The Camisole's bodice is accentuated by clusters of tucks and optional lace insertions. Slightly high-waisted and fitted in back, it is bloused in front, with soft gathers falling from ribbon beading of lace or eyelet edging. The camisole closes with drawstrings at the neck and waist, and a buttoned front opening.

The gored Petticoat falls to a wide flounce over a dust ruffle at the hemline. The drawstring waist ties at a back placket opening. The petticoat may easily be shortened for contemporary wear.

The knee-length Drawers, or "knickers", gathered at the curved waistband, are constructed with a front gusset and two buttoned side plackets. They are finished with ruffles at the knees. Petticoat and drawers are also decorated with tucking and/or lace or eyelet.

Pattern includes instructions for crocheted edging, lace insertion, and decorative embroidery stitches.

Suggested fabrics: Fine cottons or blends such as lawn, batiste, broadcloth, muslin, or silk. Petticoat can also be made of taffeta.

Fabric Requirements: See images.

Sizes Included:Ladies XS - 3XL
