Edwardian Undergarments Sewing Pattern

(For more detail on the pattern see here, here, and here.)

As I explained in an earlier post here, All my Parkington girls needed proper Edwardian underwear, so I set about making them. This led to me developing a sewing pattern so that others can make proper undergarments for their dolls. This pattern includes instructions to make a chemise, drawers, and a corset-waist. You can purchase the different sizes here: 14″, 16″, 18″

The pattern is rated at intermediate, but most of the individual steps are easy, so if you follow the directions carefully it shouldn’t be too hard. Of course if you run into any problems please don’t hesitate to contact me at TheresaEStruebel@gmail.com  and I will be willing to help you out.

Coming in 3 sizes; 14″, 16″, and 18″; this pattern should provide whatever size you need, fitting Heart for Hearts dolls, Wellie Wishers dolls, Ginger Brook Hollow Dolls, A Girl for all Time dolls, and American Girl Dolls.

If your doll is similarly sized to one of these dolls it might fit, though you may need to tweak the pattern a little, i.e. moving the closures. Here is a table with the measurements of my dolls so you can compare.
