Print this out! Free patterns!
Nice patterns you can print out to sew your own undergarments like "drawers" aka bloomers, aprons, petticoats, etc. Wonderful resource. These are lessons that US public schools used to teach all girls in middle school and younger ages. The girls had to make their own complete outfits for a grade. I also had a sewing class in my middle school, it was part of "Home Ec.". I do not know if this class is still taught in US public schools anymore. If not, this is too bad- but aside from my editorializing, this text is a valuable resource to use, learn from. Would be wise to have this on hand for theatrical costume reproduction pattern making.

Excellent resource book
Excellent resource for the drafting and construction of early 20th century everyday work and undergarments for women.
