Historical Sewing Patterns
Open crotch, drawers type garment.
Fashionable for adult ladies.
Pantalettes, sometimes called trowsers or drawers, were the forerunners to Victorian drawers. This garment was meant to be seen, and was often made of expensive fabric and decorated with extremely costly lace. The pantalettes in this Regency sewing pattern are based on a photograph of a real garment.
The legs are completely separate, and each leg is tied on with its own ribbon – which is how one could lose one leg and not the other, an embarrassing disaster for the lady, and a source of amusement for everyone else.
This pattern includes 4 pages of instructions with historical tips, and one pattern sheet. They are printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope.
All sizes Petite – X-large are included.
