Victorian Chemise Plans

 As you all know, I recently finished a Victorian corset and now I need to make a chemise to wear underneath it! I have been looking for ideas and patterns on pinterest and I think it should be pretty easy to put one together. Though all of the extant examples I have found are of course made of white linen, I will be making mine out of black cotton to match my corset. I'll have to make another chemise in white down the line whenever I decide to make a lighter color gown. Until then my preferred black shall reign supreme!

I am hoping to receive a certain Victorian bustle pattern for Christmas, and either way I will be delving into the strange world of late bustle period skirt supports as my first costuming project for 2015. I am hoping to complete an entire Victorian bustle ensemble this upcoming spring! I am going to try and get the chemise done sometime this week but I accept that it may not be possible between the holidays and my busy work schedule! I still want to finish a velvet holiday dress too, so much sewing to do, so little time!

  1. How very exciting! I've always thought that chemises were such an immensely lovely garment. I've never owned one, but hope to someday. I think it would make for such an excellent summertime nightie.
