Sized Unknown - This reproduction sewing pattern is from the May 6, 1876 issue of Harper's Bazar.
This pattern features a softly draped and pleated hood with ribbon trim.
Yardage amounts were not available for this pattern.
No size was given. IMPORTANT NOTE:
The source material from which these early patterns are replicated from contain much less information than the more modern patterns from the 1920's and 1930's.
Patterns and fashion journals published during these eras presumed that the home seamstress possessed sufficient skills to construct a garment without detailed directions.
As a result patterns for facings, linings and other details - such as instructions on how to create trims, are sketchy at best -- and usually non-existent. Most of the time sizes and yardage information is also unavailable.
In order to make these early patterns easier to use, we have dropped in grain lines, seam allowances, and clarified markings on the patterns as much as possible. Included with each of the patterns are any and all text and instructions that were available in the original source material.
It is very important when sewing these items to make a fitting mock-up of the pattern out of muslin or other waste fabric, and make all of the adjustments for your individual figure on the mock-up.
