Ladies chemise in cotton batiste with drawstring neckline

£50.00£55.00

Ladies chemise/shift/tunic in 100% cotton batiste or cotton lawn, cut to the pattern of an 18th century ladies undergarment.  This is a voluminous garment with a frilled gathered drawstring neckline, threaded with a white satin ribbon.  The sleeves are three quarter length with small amount of gathering at the shoulder, ending in a similar frilled drawstring cuff.  The gathering at the neck is not bulky as the fabric is so fine and soft. The neckline allows the wearer to adjust the gathers to fit and then tie the ribbon firmly.  It is suitable for sleeping, lounging or wearing as part of a historical costume.

The cotton batiste fabric is fine and soft.  The pattern is designed to waste no cloth, as shifts or chemises would have been made in the home, so the patterns pieces are simple geometric shapes. The sleeves are fashioned from a square of fabric with a square underarm panel to give ease of movement.

Although the pattern belongs to the 18th century, all the internal seams are finished on an over-locker.

The front slit opening is 3 inches deep. The flared shape is created by triangular gores set into the side seams. All chemises are 46″ long.
