    Price: $18.00

    Product Code: P133

    Ladies’ Robe en Chemise with optional train, puffed or long
    sleeves, two bodice gathering options, with or without ruffles —
    C. 1790-1800 The first types of Robe en Chemise were basically
    tubes of fabric that were drawn up close to the body by drawstrings
    in channels. #133 Robe en Chemise does not rely on fully functioning
    drawstrings to keep the fabric drawn in. This is the type of transitional
    Robe en Chemise has all the gathers fixed; either by a waistband
    or fixed gathers at neck and arm, for the puffed sleeve. The
    bodice opens in back and is tied together with drawstrings. It does
    not overlap; center back just meets. The bodice ends about half-way
    between underbust and natural waist. The appearance of the placement
    of the waist can be changed by tying the sash in different
    heights on the body. The bodice can be made with or without the
    bodice lining that is provided in the pattern. The bodice can be made
    as in View A, with limited gathering front and back or it can be made
    as in View B with full gathering at front and back. Both Views do
    not have gathering under the arms on the bodice, reducing bulk in
    this area. Both Views can have a high or lower neckline at the front
    and can have a ruffle at the neck and arm or can be left plain. The
    ruffles are separate from the dress. The ruffle width, fullness, and
    the fabric used can be changed as desired by the maker. Either View
    can have the puffed sleeve or long slim sleeve. Either View can have
    a train, though the train fabric requirements are not included in View
    A. Fabric: cotton or silk. Cotton—muslin, lawn, mousseline, voile,
    organdy, gauze, batiste. Silk--taffeta, organza. Both views are best
    made with a light weight fabric with good body. Drapery fabrics
    should be avoided. Most Robes en Chemise were made of plain
    white fabric but there are some examples of printed or figured,
    striped, checked, dotted, especially Swiss, embroidered, spangled, or
    all over motifs. Lining: muslin or silk Habotai (China Silk). Notions:
    2 yards cotton or linen 3/8” tape. Optional, hooks and eyes
    to close the back

    Went together perfectly! August 15, 2016
    Reviewer: Mimi from WA United States  
    This is a great pattern! It goes together quickly and makes such a pretty dress. I LOVE the new pattern paper and instruction booklets. Because of that I have bought more of your patterns and will actually make them. Sizing runs true to chart. Even so, always make a muslin.

    Robe en Chemise November 14, 2015
    Reviewer: Historic Clothing from Fishers, IN United States  
    The service was very good; the pattern arrived promptly.  I won't get around to using it until 2016, but I'm sure it's as good as the Regency Stays pattern.
