PM57 Woman's Skirt and Apron.

This fine pattern includes detailed illustrated instructions for the construction of Woman's Skirts, Petticoats and Aprons and is a must for the Traditional Lady.

The kind of fabric, the amount of material in a Skirt or Petticoat and the kind of waistband used were indicative of the "station" and living style of a woman in the 18th and 19th centuries. Linen or wool were used for everyday and for many women that was all they had or could afford. For special occasions, finer weight fabrics and silk and cotton were used.

This skirt pattern has either a peasant style drawstring waistband or a fitted waistband, side slits for reaching into Pockets (see PM55) and has two optional lengths. The Apron has an option of two bib front styles.

As with all Eagle's View Patterns, all terms are fully defined in the handy glossary and this is combined with bold illustrations that make using these patterns easy even for the novice seamstress.

Price: $10.00

Due to issues with our toll-free number, we have discontinued it.

We have created a Google Voice number that will forward directly to our mobile phone during business hours, and be available to take messages. You are welcome to send texts to that number as well. Somehow our toll free number got into a database that is calling it all hours of the night, from non-existant phone numbers. The very best way to contact us is by sending an email though the web site! If you must phone us, our Google Voice number is Four-zero-two, seven-three-nine, nine-four-seven-five. I am very sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

Our hours are :
