This one piece step-in undergarment is based on a design that was popular for girls from 1900 through the 1920s. Known as a combination, it served as a chemise, petticoat, and drawers all in one and was just the thing to wear under the easy-going styles of the 1920s. The bodice closes in the back with two buttons and a snap and the handy drop-seat fastens to the bodice back with three buttons, one being shared with the lower bodice back. The neckline and armscyes are neatly finished with flat lace.
All views feature tailored plackets on each side of the drop-seat that give it a truly period finish.
This PDF sewing pattern by Thimbles and Acorns is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®.
