For your pampered French Jeune Fille, I present this lovely set of antique undergarments displaying the best of the seamstress' art. There is a pair of drawers and two petticoats: one for wearing with summer frocks, and the other of aqua wool for winter toilettes. Each item is hand sewn showing the lost art of the French seamstress to its best advantage.

The pantaloons are made of a firm white cotton, with handmade broidery anglaise lace at the cuffs, and a reinforced placket at each of two openings at the waistband. These two openings have button and buttonhole closures, but there is an additional short casing at the back of the waistband to control the fullness at the back of the pantaloons. I don't think that I have seen this detail before. the drawers are 9" (20 cm) long with a maximum waist size of 12" (30 cm).

The aqua wool petticoat is charmingly made with cream embroidery detailing at the hem, and a silk ribbon double-drawstring casing for the waistband that allows for a good fit for several sizes of dolls. There are a few scattered moth bites to the wool of this petticoat, but nothing too distracting. It measures 9 1/2" long (24 cm).

The summer-weight petticoat is nicely made of a fine cotton lawn, which has been ornamented with elaborate hand sewn cutwork at the hem. The waist closes with a drawstring that runs through a casing at the back of the waistband. The petticoat is 8 1/2" long (21.5 cm).

These garments would fit a larger-size bebe of at least 20" (51 cm) tall. Please measure for your Girl's best fit. These are great items to add to a trousseau!
