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