This replicated pattern is sized for a 7 - 9 Year Old/ approx. 24 inch chest, 22 inch waist (This sizing is based on a child in 1894, for accuracy, go by bust size not age)

This 1894 reproduction sewing pattern features a gathered dress with puff sleeves with wide cuffs, sailor collar and tie, and chemisette. Originally designed for blue and white checked wool with contrast collar, cuffs, chemisette and tie. Contrast was also used to trim center of belt.

Finished model (pink dress) shows tucks along the hemline rather than bias trim as the pattern suggests. Photo #5 and #6 (close detail of pleating and tucks) show this dress during construction.

SUGGESTED MATERIALS: Plain or printed linen, Pique, Silk Plaids, Gingham, Cotton, Light Woolens.


The source material from which these early patterns are replicated 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. It is very important when sewing 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.

This pattern was originally published in La Mode Illustree, May 1894
