A Victorian doll wearing a chemisette and split drawers. The chemisette was shortened to tie above the waist,
minimising bulk at her waist. It is wide over her shoulders to provide a little padding where needed.
When deciding what underwear to make, consider the silhouette you want and adjust the pattern to suit.
For example, you don't have to worry much about keeping the waist slim under a Regency dress. As well, our dolls vary between
the two styles and within each style. Therefore you should check the patterns against your doll before cutting any valuable fabric.
These patterns represent a starting point and a method of working.
If you have never made anything so small before, these patterns will give you the confidence to approach more complicated garments.
We are great believers in making clothes that are removeable, either by simply untying a cord, or as a last resort,
by snipping the barest minimum number of stitches.
