Just learned the term chemisette today, previously have always used the term dickey. This is so cute and also seems easy to make. With all the recent discussions about sewing journals, I think this would be a great exercise in making button holes and collars!

Using eyelet is a great summery idea. Personally I end up wearing tank tops underneath shirts for work because they're cut just a tad too low for me.

Have you seen the ones that attach to your bra straps? They are like a little slip of fabric, and have elastic on the edge to snap over the strap and hold in place. You can also wear these under a buttoned blazer.

It also seems to me that you can re cycle a thrift store blouse or a dozen to do the same thing...

I do like the eyelet..a great idea. There is a "made for TV" product called Cami-Secret that is sold in store..you get 3 for about $10..It's so easy to make your own..there was a discussion here about it several years ago, but I can't find the thread.

As was previously posted, this is not a new idea. The book "Make and Mend for Victory" has some versionst...Look at the right page here and it may give you some ideas..

This is from my review of the ruffled jabot on the left, so some of the right side is cut off.

There are a number of old patterns for dickies and also collars and cuffs. Here's Simplicity 9080, which is from sometime in the 1990's.

Jannw, thanks for sharing that image! Some of those are cute and some are very Judge Judy!

I used to own a dickey myself, but never got around to wearing it because it reminded me of a polo shirt. Using eyelet adds a refreshing feel that also seems more versatile.

Thank you, Miss Fairchild! Now that the heat index is in the 100's here, I wouldn't mind using one of those versus wearing an entire camisole
