Our simple gathered neck chemise is perfect for most of the 1800’s. It is made of 100% clear white cotton muslin with cotton beading eyelet at the neckline. This chemise is a simple flowing style which gathers around the neckline by pulling the ribbon in the eyelet making it very adjustable. Our chemise is sleeveless with a generous arm opening prevents binding in the armhole of your dress. The lower edge is finished with a simple rolled hem.

A chemise is an essential item of a ladies underpinnings. Chemises provide the layer between your skin and corset, to keep the corset clean and from pinching and binding as it is adjusted. If you are not wearing a corset the chemise offers a layer of modesty and protects your clothing from the oils on your skin.

This chemise was designed with comfort in mind. It has a nice mid-rise neckline that is totally adjustable. The armholes are wide and generous so that the chemise will not bind up under your dresses. At 31-32 inches in length it is a little on the shorter side so that it does not get caught up in your drawers or pantaloons or prevent you from taking a nice stride step.

Sizing:  We offer this chemise in 4 Sizes: To insure a good fit use the larger measurement from your bust, waist or hips. (If you need a larger size - check out our PLUS SIZE listings)
Petite: 30-33 inches
Small: 34-38 inches
Medium: 38-42 inches
Large: 44-48 inches
CUSTOM: If needed I can do a CUSTOM item to any measurement - Just put the measurement in the comment section.

I also offer a "set" with matching split crotch drawers with eyelet 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.
