Lovey Mary Sun Bonnet

Fabric Bonnets were worn by european as well as overseas women and girls during the second half of the 19th and early 20th Century, providing sun protection on all outdoor activities, be it leisure or work. Suitable for Prairie Bonnets as seen in "Little House on the Prairie".

This pattern is based on an american antique pattern. The name derives from the novel „Lovey Mary“ by Alice Hegan Rice, published in 1903 in the The Century Magazine, so the pattern should be of slightly later date.

Wyoming Ranch Skirt

Propriety during the Victorian era demanded women were never to be seen in anything other than dresses which were long enough to cover the ankle. Both unconventional and entprising, the cowgirls of the Wild West came up with a transitional skirt/pants outfit which was safer and more practical than skirts. Because sitting astride a saddle was considered by some to be unladylike and unhealthy, this ingenious skirt was made with a removable front panel for a skirt effect when not riding. The skirt can be sewn in either of two lenght. The package also included patterns for a matching vest and instructions for sewing with leather.

Susans Polonaise

A polonaise is dress with a tight bodice and a short skirt divided in front and looped, or drawn back, over a longer skirt. The polonaise was worn in the 1870’s and 80’s. Typically, the bodice was very full in the rear and is supported by a bustle (included in our pattern). The fit of the bodice should be tight and worn with a corset thus it is necessary to tailor fit during construction over a corset.  For those “loose women” who refuse to wear a corset, the pattern includes a boned version to produce the same smooth silhouette. (Though snug, the polonaise should be loose enough to allow for breathing)

The Polonaise can be made in calico for a casual look or in silk or taffeta for a more formal appearance.  This ensemble was often worn as a wedding dress, made in white silk with lavish trims and beading.  The Polonaise pattern package includes Polonaise, skirt, bustle, and both a high-neck and V-neck versions.
