About the Embroidery

The embroidery 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 in both whitework and multiple colors. 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.

We make every effort to ensure that our machine embroidery designs evoke period hand embroidery techniques, and are well-researched so you can use them with confidence on your historical costuming projects. They may copy the wobbles or slight flaws in an original design, to help keep them from looking too perfect and modern. They may contain details that you are not used to seeing in modern machine embroidery designs, such as more color changes or jump stitches between areas. All our files are accompanied by a detailed description of the original design as well as stitching instructions and thread recommendations so you can get the most out of these designs.

You will receive a detailed PDF along with the digital files needed to stitch out this design on a wide variety of embroidery machines. Included are directions for stitching this design on a camisole like the Wearing History 1910’s Camisole or Corset Cover (R111), or another design of your choice.

About the Pattern

This design is bundled with Wearing History’s 1910’s Camisole or Corset Cover (R111) e-pattern. This camisole or corset cover pattern is based on an original period pattern from the 1910s. It is equally lovely when worn for period costume or worn as a modern casual top!

The front and back are cut loosely and the front retains a bit of the “drooped” front which was popular in the early 1900s. This camisole adjusts at the neckline by running ribbon through lace beading and tying it to your preference. The waist is permanantly axed to an interior waist stay, and then accented with lace beading. This camisole or corset cover can be made sleeveless or with short, gathered sleeves attached to a cuff. It can end at the waist, or be made with a peplum.

This pattern includes bust sizes 32″-48″ in one size packet.

BUST-    32-34-36-38-40-42-44-46-48

WAIST- 22-24-26-28-30-32-34-36-38

This pattern was original for WOMENS SIZING.  Juniors, Misses, and Plus Sizes may require alteration for fit.

The waist ratio is very different than current standards, but testers substituted larger waist pieces with no difficulty.  If your waist exceeds the size chart, we have included information on where to enlarge the waist and peplum pieces.

What to expect from this sewing pattern:

This pattern is a “Resto-Vival” pattern from the 1910s, which means it was based on original period source material which has been RESTORED and REVIVED.

This Pattern Includes:

  • Bust sizes 32″-48″ Bust, all in the same packet
  • Original period sewing instructions which were included with this pattern.  These are unillustrated and about a paragraph in length.
  • I have composed and compiled written two pages of unillustrated instructions to help you with assembly.
  • A page listing checkpoints to keep an eye on when you fit your pattern (refer to a fit book for instruction on how to alter, as these are not included).
  • Added instruction taken from period 1910s sewing books that can be applied to your construction.
  • An image from a period 1910s catalog to help envision trimming
  • This E-pattern includes both files to print in COLOR or in BLACK AND WHITE.  You get to pick which one to print!

This Pattern Does Not Include:

  • DOES NOT INCLUDE illustrated step by step instructions.  They are mostly text only.
  • DOES NOT INCLUDE detailed information on basic technique. You should be familiar with basic construction or have a sewing book handy if you need help on how to hem, gather, and attach basic seams together.
  • DOES NOT INCLUDE cutting charts.  You will need to create your own cutting layout on your yardage.
  • DOES NOT HAVE uniform seam allowance.  Seam allowance retains the original period standards, so seam allowances vary from 3/8″ to 1.5″.  This was to allow for later alterations at the most frequent alteration spots (such as side seams and shoulder seams).
  • DOES NOT INCLUDE direction for embroidery or embellishment.  You are to trim as you desire.  If you have an Embroidery Machine, you may purchase the beautiful embroidery patterns designed by Romantic Recollections to go along with this pattern.
