Fichu Pattern Pre-Sales

Announcing my new pattern!

Pre-orders are now being taken through November 25th. Pre-ordered patterns will be shipped on December 1st or 3rd. As this initial printing will entirely depend on the number of pre-orders, be sure to order early. Please visit my Etsy Store to place your order.

Whether for a ball or a summer day, a fichu is a lovely accessory. From light and airy to soft with hints of color, fashionable fichus were worn with day wear as well as evening and dinner wear. This pattern will guide you in making a fashionable fichu extending the versatility of your Civil War era or antebellum, 1850s wardrobe. With the four popular shapes of the era included in this pattern along with the many variations of embellishment described in the pattern directions booklet, you can make an almost endless variety of era accurate fichus.

Each pattern includes:
A single sheet pattern with four fichu styles
A directions booklet with observations of fichus, directions and fashion descriptions.

Please visit my Etsy Store to place your order.


Since several people are looking to make a fichu as a gift, I thought it would be nice to get them started with some fabrics while we wait for the pattern to ship.

Fichu Pattern Coming Soon!

EDIT: November 2014: My Fichu Pattern is officially out of print and sold out (the last copy left the Genesee Country Village earlier this month). I plan Not to reprint this pattern due to the cost of doing so. 

I finally sat down and put the fichu pattern together. Okay, I’ll admit, it was getting to the printer to get the main pattern scanned that was the hurdle. From there, the layout for the directions booklet fell right into place. This pattern follows the same format as my quilted hood pattern – a pattern page and a booklet containing observations, directions and fashion information accompanied by photographs and illustrations.

Here I am wearing one of the variations of the pattern. The pattern offers three different shapes for the lappets as well as multiple ways to embellish the fichu.

This is another version of a fichu, without lappets.
