Wearing History #R3009- E-Pattern-Gigi Early 1930's Combination Underwear Pattern

This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper.

--- DESCRIPTION ---

Announcing Gigi! This Resto-Vival sewing pattern is from the early 1930’s and is adorable for under your dresses or wearing as loungewear!

Gigi features great Art Deco lines that are fun for using your lovely laces and satins. Or make it up in cool cottons for darling lounge wear or sleep wear!

This pattern is a multi-sized pattern and includes sizes 30″-42″ bust in one packet.

This pattern has more minimal instructions than modern sewing patterns, as it is based off of a period original. The instructions include an image of the garment put together with pointers of how to do this. I have also included my written instructions I compiled as well as pointers about fit and mock up to make construction easier. This makes the pattern a lot easier to navigate than going off of a period original!

I recommend this for intermediate sewists, as you will need to be able to put a basic garment together with little instruction. The construction includes techniques such as lapped seams and side snap plackets.



--- SIZING ---


All sizes below are included in these e-pattern files.

Bust 30 32 34 36 38 40 42
Hip 33 35 37 39 41 43 45

Cutting charts are only included for 34" bust. All other sizes will need to test placement on their fabric before cutting.

This pattern is based on vintage WOMENS sizing. Women's sizing was for a more mature figure. Juniors, Misses, and Plus sizes may require alterations to get the pattern to fit correctly.

About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are printed on sturdy bond paper instead of tissue and clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
