Fashions 1806-1810 by Susan Sirkis - xx

This vintage book is No. 1 of the Wishlet Series by Susan Sirkis. It contains patterns and instructions for clothing and hairstyles for 5½" dolls for a 1:12 scale dollhouse.

Includes lingerie, simple dress, riding habit, visiting dress, evening dress, wedding dress, Lavinia bonnet, plain bonnet, corded silk bonnet, riding hat, short cape, reticule, parasol, boa, scarf, shirt and a chemisette. The English called a chemisette a "Betsie" (after Queen Elizabeth I) when neck ruffles were present. It was worn under low necked dresses and was especially popular towards the end of the period. This book is from my private collection. Published in 1985.

Thank you for looking.........this book has been sold.
