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
