Primrose Chemise 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1 review   |  

This sweet and practical 1870 era chemise is designed specifically to be worn under 1870s style dresses with their fashionable fitted sleeves, but works just as well as a dainty summer nightie. It is very simple in design with only four pieces. It features short dolman like sleeves that are edged with lace and a round lace edged yoke that fastens one button at each shoulder (snaps or hook and loop tape can be used, if preferred). The chemise is finished with a lace edged hem that completes this simple, yet feminine garment.

This PDF sewing pattern, by Thimbles and Acorns, is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl® and Other Similarly Sized Dolls.

Suggested Fabrics:  Chemise in light weight cotton, batiste, voile, linen, or silk. Not suitable for knits.

Sweet and simple

This cute chemise went together really well. I chose to make mine as nighties. Next time, I think I would use a lightweight interfacing for the yoke as the fine voile fabric did pull a little out of shape. The instructions for applying the lace were easy to follow. I worked on these two sporadically over a couple of days, but it should be easy enough to finish this pattern in an afternoon for an experienced seamstress.
