Hi! This is just a quick announcement to let you know that we now have all of our American Duchess Simplicity costume patterns available at, woo!

You'll find Simplicity 8161 and 8162, our first patterns for the 18th century inspired bodice, gown, petticoat, and stomacher; and the chemise, bum pad, and stays.

Simplicity 8161 and 8162 available on

Also available in Simplicity 8411 for the 18th century inspired robe de cour gown with the fully boned bodice, full skirt, and very large side hoops.

Lastly, Simplicity 8578 and 8579 are available, starring Abby in the Robe a la Francaise from "The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Dressmaking," and a full set of historically accurate 18th century underpinnings (shift, stays, and side hoops) to get you started. Remember, you can use the patterns with the machine sewing instructions OR use the instructions in our book to make the gown, petticoat, and hoops by hand using 18th century methods.

  1. hi American Duchess, my name is Jacquline Goss I have recently brought your book, the main trouble I'm having is that i'm a plus Size woman and I can not find any plus size corset or stays patterns for 18th Century dress making. I totally love Outlander and I wish to make Clair's costumes for plus size same with the undergarments can you please help i'm a beginner sewer.

  2. Exactly what underpinnings is the model wearing in the 8161 photo to achieve that silhouette?
