This chemise utilizes a band of hand-made lace at the neckline. This band allows the chemise to be worn either up on your shoulders (for day wear) or down off the shoulders so it will fit under the low necklines and sleeveless styling of many of the ball or evening gowns worn during the period. (See photos) This chemise also makes a wonderful, pretty nightgown for warm weather wear.

Our chemise is made of 100% cotton with a simple rolled hem. The body measures 30 inches long.

SIZING:  The size of the chemise is based on the measurement around your shoulders with your arms at your side. The other measurement to consider is the larger of your waist or hips.

I offer 4 ready-made sizes BUT will custom make to any measurement.
Small: Shoulders - 38 inches; Waist/Hips - Up to 36 inches
Medium: Shoulders - 42 inches; Waist/ Hips - Up to 42 inches
Large: Shoulders - 48 inches; Waist/Hips - Up to 48 inches
X-Large: Shoulders - 54 inches; Waist/ Hips - Up to 54 inches

CUSTOM: I can make this chemise to any measurements. Shoulders, waist/hip or a custom length.
I also offer a "set" with matching split crotch drawers with handmade lace at the lower edge to match the band of the chemise.

This chemise can be machine washed in cool to warm water, bleached if necessary BUT should be hung to dry.
