Ladies chemise in fine calico
This lightweight calico chemise is a voluminous, ankle length, opaque, one-size garment, inspired by the chemises worn by Demelza and Prudie in the BBC production of Poldark.
We are now using a superior, pre-shrunk calico which is a much softer fabric.
The gathered drawstring neckline makes it both attractive and flexible, as it allows the wearer to adjust the gathers to make a flattering outline under a corset, and to make the neck line higher or lower.
It is suitable for sleeping, lounging or wearing as part of a historical costume where the character is that of a working woman or servant.
This is a one-size garment – size as follows
Back length from neck to hem 48″.
The measurement across the chest is 28”.
The measurement across the hip is 28”.
The measurement across the hem is 38”.
