Sewing: 18th Century Chemise

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my photo of the new Outlander pattern from American Duchess. I knew as soon as I saw these two new patterns I must make them! I have such a love for historical fashion :) While these patterns are intended for 'costume/cosplay' purposes only, Lauren will be doing an entire series on her blog of how to "hack" the patterns and make them historically accurate. YAY!

I knew before leaving for Alaska I needed (really just wanted ;) to make up one of the pieces from the underpinnings pattern pack. My rule of thumb for historical sewing is that before I make any of the outer garments I have to make the underpinnings first. I decided to sew up the chemise, which was delightful and incredibly easy to put together! Once I return from Alaska in a couple months I will make my way to sewing the Stays/Bum Roll.

And there you go! The beautiful patterns from American Duchess. 
I am particularly fond of view B. For the outer garment. 

Have a wonderful day everyone!
