A new chemisette

Two posts in one week, what's come over me?

I made this chemisette earlier this autumn but haven't got around writing about it. It's very similar to the other chemisette I have but I chose to make a double gathered collar rather than a pleated one and I also played a little with the pleating on the front pieces. The fabric is silk-viscose blend and very nice to sew. Everything is handsewn and the pattern came from Janet Arnold's book, I think.

  1. A cute little frilly thing! Do you remember how much fabric you used? I have a leftover piece which is roughly 75 x 75 cm, would that be enough?

    1. Hm, I can't remember the exact amount, it was less than 1 metre and the fabric was 136cm wide. The fronts are about 32cm long and 17 cm wide (after tucking), the back ca. 28 cm and about 30 cm wide at its widest bit. The collar is made of two widths of the fabric. Hope this helps!

  2. That's so beautiful with the tucks down the front.

  4. So cute! I love that you've tacked the pleats down on the front to go in opposite directions. The wavy effect is lovely.

    Best,
