Today I’ve sewn an Edwardian broderie anglaise lace chemise.
I joined together three different broderie anglaise lace ribbons for the yoke.
The off-white cotton fabric is slightly gathered under the lace yoke.
All seams are finished with flat felled seams – the typical seam for Edwardian lingerie because it irons well and doesn’t chafe the skin.
Edwardian chemises had a button closure on the shoulders.
This pretty Edwardian chemise was my main inspiration. I think my reproduction is very similar. 🙂
I could thread pink silk ribbon through the eyelet lace, like Edwardian lingerie often had. But I’m also liking the chemise as it is. What do you think?
After finishing the chemise, I baked ‘melting moments’. 🙂
