The Elizabethan Lady's Underpinnings
The Elizabethan Lady's Underpinnings package contains undergarments designed for use with our Elizabethan Lady's Wardrobe patterns. Like all our patterns, these are based on extensive historical research. Working carefully from the best sources available, we have produced a set of undergarment patterns that are authentic, easy to put together for beginners, with authentic details for advanced sewers.

The patterns are multi-sized from 2 to 30 (view sizing chart pdf).
In addition, the package comes with extensive instructions: 102 pages of fully illustrated text, 3-hole punched for insertion in a binder. This includes instruction in advanced sewing and costuming techniques, appendices, sizing and measuring charts, a detailed bibliography, and an attractive cover insert.
"Margo's pattern is the most comfortable corset
I have ever worn. There is no slouching in the ones I have made, and
I always feel as though I have the proper silhouette for the period
and the high noble gowns that I wear."
"These patterns are just beautiful! and the
instructions... whoa - very nicely done. I love the fact that they're
8x11, with enough whitespace for me to write in my own notes... thanks
again for such a beautiful and enormous project."
