#2601 1926 Negligee
Anyone else out there have a bunch of decorative stitches on your sewing machine that you never get the chance to use? Well, this vintage pattern is for you! This stunning pattern is from 1926. Even though it is a negligee we think it has potential for outside the boudoir. All of the outer edges of this garment provide an opportunity to show off a decorative stitch finish.
The pattern has directions for the fabric flower and for hand embroidery stitches to finish edges as they did in the 1920s. Machine embroidery would be just as fabulous as the fabric flower.
When this pattern came out in 1926, 40" wide fabric was the norm. The pattern takes advantage of that and calls for use of the selvage edge. If you are a 42" bust or larger, you can keep the original intent of the design and use 45" wide fabric. If the selvage edge is pretty, you can use it as the side of the garment!
Pattern includes all sizes.
