The pattern has options to fit Edwardian as well as 1910s. Options include choice of neckline, collar, and lining if you want a delicate lace blouse. I found a gorgeous lace in the perfect ivory color, but since it was a crafter's lace it required 3 washings with fabric softener before it was as soft as I wanted. For the lining I used the same lightweight linen that I used for the undies and will be using for the suit jacket.
With all pattern pieces cut I pinned them to the dressform over the corset and undies. Here is where I realized the lining would have to be altered to cover my camisole. I cut the pieces from pattern saver that should be removed from the blouse front and back pattern pieces to make the lining and then scaled them down until they were the right size.
Then I laid those new patterns on the linen already cut and removed what I needed to create the lining neckline.
With the correct lining neckline the camisole will be properly covered.
The pin is pretty with these mini mosaic earrings. Don't you love when that happens?
For closure I added pearl buttons with some hooks and eyes in between 4 sets of buttons in the center because the smooth buttons and lace tended to open when pulled.
