Description

Inspired by gowns worn during the Civil War period, this PDF pattern includes fully illustrated instructions and professionally drawn patterns to make two variations of the dress, as well as the pantaloons. It also includes detailed instructions on how to transform an ordinary straw hat into a Civil War era bonnet. It is rated intermediate, and recommended that you have basic sewing skills.

View A has a collar that folds back from a contrasting pin-tucked yoke. The full sleeves have a cuff and a bell-shaped over-sleeve, typical of the period. It has bias contrast bands on the sleeves and skirt.

View B has a collar that folds back from a contrast yoke with a pleat in the center. It has puff sleeves finished with a narrow cuff, and a contrasting bias band on the full skirt. The bodice is embellished with buttons down the front and it has a matching bonnet.

The bonnet is typical of the era. It starts out as an ordinary straw hat, which is cut to shape, and the edges bound. Also included are directions for making fabric roses and leaves for embellishment.

To finish the outfit off, a pair of white pantaloons are included. They have a grow tuck and a lace edge, with an elastic casing at the waist.
