Where do you buy your slip dresses etc? I’d prefer something a little more form fitting and not straight cut. Budget is up to £80 could possibly stretch a little!
Je n'avais pas l'occasion de porter une chemise boutonnée depuis la commencement du confinement. Mon travail n'exige qu'une tenue relaxe et je porte d'habitude des t-shirts. Il n'y avait aucun besoin de porter quelque chose d'autre.
Mais ce soir, j'étais censé rencontre quelqu'un de nouveau et je voulais créer une bonne première impression. Je m'ai donc raser et j'ai porté ma chemise chic. J'aimais bien me déguiser après si longtemps.
I get that large changes were made in other centuries, but it just seems like such a large change. When put next to each other, 1890s and 1990s fashion look like they came from completely different worlds. What events lead to such a dramatic change in fashion tastes and what could be considered modest?
Alright folks. Here we go. I can't decide because there's a lot of pros to all of these choices. Those of you who have made undergarments from the 1860's onward, please help me decide.
I think the problem for me is that I just really like how voile feels but it can be SO SHEER! I know I'm putting my foundation over these but still, it can be really sheer.
I know the lawn (mercerized or not) is the more accurate but I got my hands on the voille in store and I just really fell in love with how it feels.
I could just use my ol' muslin from the mockup but it clings to everything and it is the most uncomfy of materials for drawers! I don't want to have to use it for the final.
Est ce qu’il y’a une personne aux alentours de Paris, qui pourra m’aider à faire un patron d’une chemise manche courte existante ? Sinon si vous avez des liens vers des vidéos, je suis preneur. Bonne journée Merci 😊
I ordered linen and linen thread from Burnley and Trowbridge. Has anyone ordered from them? I wanted to know how long they usually take to ship. Any ideas? I live in New York State and I am using their sew alongs when my linen comes
Edit - it is June 9th and it just came. 4 days, nice. Linen is in the washing machine on hot. Will be starting my shift today :)
What are your suggestions for a pattern to use for a simple shift? I want a fairly easy to sew linen shift with slightly stylized sleeves, but nothing too fancy. I am going for a working class look during approx. American Revolution (1770s/1780s)
Kind of an unusual request, but my wife constantly gets a cold upper back, so she'd like to get something that that covers that area. Any options? Everything I've looked at leaves that area uncovered. Thanks in advance.
I'm on the hunt for good recommendations for historical shows or movies to watch while I stitch. Preferably something that I can stream on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon, as I'd like to save money right now.
Any recommendations will do, but if you can say why you like it, that'd be helpful.
I'm up for anything, but shows with absolutely terrible costumes, I'm fine with suspension of disbelief and creative interpretation, but if they're wearing prom dresses to the 1600 French court, it's a hard pass.
So I want to make a chemise with an adjustable front gather with a drawstring; I've only done pleating and sewn in gathering before. The problem is that I'm trying to test out options and they're all coming out terrible. It's a regency chemise with a rather wide, open neckline rounded at the ends like this https://peculiarseamstress.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/a6888-empirsc3a4rkdragsko.jpg
I've attempted creating casing both through rolling the hem and cutting a separate stripe of fabric for casing. However, I can't help it from getting all curled up and messed up at the edges where it changes directions like this. I can't seem to f... keep reading on reddit ➡
Now that fabric stores just reopened after 2 months, I'm going to gather materials to complete my regency ensemble. I haven't made a chemise yet, however it seems like the construction is basically the same as chemises from earlier periods (neckline and sleeve adjustments aside), and I was wondering if I need to change the pattern at all. To my understanding a chemise would be:
Does a regency era chemise differ from this design at all? Are there any specific characteristics I should take into account, or would a chemise done like that work for the regency era just fine?
After watching Bernadette Banners "Modern Marie Antoinette: Adapting a Late 18th Century Chemise à la Reine" for the hundredth time, i have decided i REALLY want a dress similar to this. The only problem is i don't know how to make patterns and i can't seem to find any for Chemise a la reine.
So i turn to you wonderful people, Have any of you come across a pattern? If you have please link it down below.
Thank you, and stay safe everyone
Here is the link to presale , gped the shirt will post pics when I get it in my warehouse
Bonjour Reddit !
J'essaie de retrouver sans succès une chemise portée par mon père en 85, dont vous trouverez une photo ici : https://imgur.com/a/g4mD0CY
Tout ce que j'ai à présent c'est l'inscription "Blondie" qui fait référence à la BD de serge clerc, publiée en 1981.
Peut être que les inspecteurs de Reddit pourront apporter leur pierre à notre grand édifice.
Merci à tous pour votre aide (ou non d'ailleurs !)
I would love to sew a chemise a la Reine because it is simply beautiful! Do any of you know where I oculd find a pattern, or how I can draft one myself?
My fiance, like many I bet, has fallen in love with the costumes and fashion of the Peaky Blinders BBC series. Specifically this set from S5E1.
I understand that these outfits are often custom made, but is there anywhere that I can find this kind of embroided/floral/mesh & vintage style one piece? Bonus points for a matching set with garter and panties.
Gallery included, sorry for the low quality images.
Hi! I'm making a Tudor noblewoman's gown from the 1530s, think Anne Boleyn. I know how to make all of the pieces except the most important one: the chemise! For some reason, I am HORRIBLE at making chemises of any sort, and they always end up falling off of my shoulders and looking horrendously ugly. HELP!
Hello! I just want to say I have a horrible time finding bralettes, chemises and other quasi supporting things to sleep in. Even ones that claim to support smaller bands and larger cups don't fit. For other who have this problem, I'd like to share. I found this wonderful Freya Chemise https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B4QFP99/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_5q.cEbA3N035R and wanted to give my review!
First of all, I think it's beautiful! I got in black because I'm a basic betch. I love the see through lace that wraps along the rib cage, the skirt material is soft and lays perfectly with the shape of my body. It doesn't have that typical "babydoll" shape and is more "A-line" shape I guess that's what it called... which I really like because I feel so juvenile in those babydoll shapes. The length is perfect and lands 1/2 down my thigh. For reference I'm 5'3 and weigh 140lbs. I got this in a size medium, which was perfect.
Now for the bra part. The straps feel like typical bra straps from panache... keep reading on reddit ➡
has anyone any advice on the neck closure, the book that i based the pattern on ( elizabeth friednship: making a working womans costume) had unclear instructions and when i research i mostly find like upper class chemises and combinations. does it get gathered or is it made with a drawstring, i think it may have a drawsteing since it said i have to make 2 eyelets but i am not completely sure.
