1910 Camisole with Bows



Hand Embroidery Design for Camisole with Bows


The pattern for this camisole was taken from Embroidery Hints, Fall and Winter 1910, which is a catalog of embroidery designs for household goods. This was design 2150, for a 3-piece corset cover with both the embroidery and cutting pattern stamped on good  Nainsook for 25 cents, or on extra quality French Nainsook for 40 cents, available in small, medium, or large sizes.

This design includes embroidery for the front and back of the camisole design. Eyelets sized for 1/4” or 1/2” ribbon have been included for use at the neckline, waist, and sleeves, if desired. Eyelets are arranged in pairs and individually.

This embroidery design has been tested with Wearing History’s 1910’s Camisole or Corset Cover (R111) pattern. It should also work with other camisole patterns, but please double check and adjust the placement as needed for your particular pattern.
