Im trying to conserve and be resourceful and Im looking for the construction of a petti-chemise in ESC's Infant patterns, but I dont know what to attach the petticoat to. Am I to attach the petticoat to the "shirt" pattern? If so, would it be better if the shirt was closed or open? Or do I attach the petti to the "Underdress"?

And then for the shirt, theres this huge flap. What is this? Do I hem the flap? What is its purpose?

The petticoat for a "petti-chemise" is attached to a piece called "flannels". It looks like a wrap dress.

The flap on the shirt covers the stays/flannels between the straps. Its purpose is to catch the drool and muck on a garment that is easily changed and cleaned.

There is no set of instructions for the pettichemise option in the current pattern (took that out about six years ago, as it was getting over-done for the era).

You can make up the basic chemise, very small, and add a waistband, with skirts right to that band.
