A Regency Chemisette with ruff - Jane Austen Festival
A new chemisette with a ruff collar will come with me to Bath, I love the one in the painting on the left, such gloriously sheer silk, ah if only we could buy such beautiful fabric now, le sigh!
I am using the pattern from Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion, but without the pin tucks.
So here is my finished version, I have made three collar layers in organdy as it keeps shape so well, the bodice is cotton muslin.
