IMPORTANT NOTE: This pattern was transcribed from the June 16, 1912 edition of the French Fashion Magazine La Mode Illustree. 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. 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: Silk, Taffeta, Velvet, Light WoolensNapped or Fabrics With One-Way Designs Will Require Additional Yardage.
