This replicated pattern is sized to fit a 36 inch bust.

This reproduction sewing pattern features a corset cover with lace insertion detailing and a peplum-like hem. Very feminine. from La Mode Illustree January 21, 1912. For a look at construction techniques, check out Carrie's blog (photo#3 is her fabulous creation):

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The French fashion magazine La Mode Illustree from which this patterns has been replicated contained far less sewing instructions 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. 

Be aware that all of these patterns run small compared to our modern bodies, and were drafted with the understanding that "proper" undergarments/and corsets would be worn underneath.  Armholes especially tend to be much tighter and smaller than modern garments.

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.

SUGGESTED MATERIALS:  Batiste, Cotton, Silk
