This pattern if for an assortment of chemisettes and cuffs, suitable for the 1860’s. The chemisettes are perfect for filling in a low cut diner bodice, making it more suitable for day wear. You can also add interest to a more conservative neckline, with just the collar showing. The cuffs can fill out wide sleeves, or give a nice finish to a narrow sleeve.
There are three full chemisette styles: Plain Front, Tucked Front, and Gathered Front. Both the Plain and Tucked Fronts have a center front button closure. The Gathered Front is buttoned closed at the collar and waist only. All the versions have a waistband that holds the chemisette in place at the waistline. There are 3 styles of Collar to add to the chemisette: a Shaped Stand, Pointed
Fall, and Large Fall. Both the Pointed and Large Fall collars also have a small stand. All of the collar varieties are interchangeable with any of the chemisette styles.
There are two styles of undersleeve with a choice of three cuffs. The first is a full gathered under-sleeve, which gathers into a fitted upper sleeve section, and gathers at the cuff. The second is a
semi- fitted under-sleeve style, with moderate gathers at the wrist, and easing to fit the upper sleeve section. There are three interchangeable cuff styles: a rounded Shaped Cuff, a moderately Tall Cuff, and a narrow Band Cuff.
