I haven’t shown you pictures of me wearing my Edwardian lace chemise yet. I made the chemise in January for the Historical Sew Monthly.
The chemise is made with off-white cotton batiste and cream-colored cotton Valenciennes lace which I found on ebay.
The chemise is closed with buttons.
I’m not really happy with how it turned out because the neckline is too high. So I can’t wear the chemise under my Edwardian lingerie blouse because it shows through the lace collar. I’m thinking about making another chemise or combination suit for my Edwardian lingerie dress! 😉

You did a great job! I wish I was really good at sewing, but I’ve never been able to make something to wear before.
Thank you Natalie! 🙂
I love this turn to more traditional clothing. It is an era that should not have been forgotten.
I think it’s darling, even if you can’t wear it with your Edwardian dress.! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
