This replicated pattern is sized for a 10 Year Old/ 26 inch bust (This sizing is based on a child in 1897, for accuracy, go by bust size not age)

This 1897 reproduction sewing pattern features a gathered dress with puff sleeves and attached bretelles. A bretelle is basically an elaborate capelet/strap that attaches at front and back of bodice and sits on the shoulders. They are optional, but why would you want to omit them?!

SUGGESTED MATERIALS: Plain or printed silk, Crepe, Satin, Cotton, Linen, Light-weight 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 is from a Cosmopolitan Fashion Pattern
